Carly Light, wins her first major title with a stunning half race attack

Ballarat City, 33km 

Race Writeup

In Brief >>

Carly Light from South Australia, pulled off the biggest win of her young career by winning the Australian criterium Championships in Ballarat. 

Light attacked at the half way point of the 33km race and despite a number of attacks from the chasing bunch she could not be caught. Chloe Hosking (Team Columbia-HTC) pulled off the best sprint of her new, professional, career to get second on the line, ahead of a battle for third between Megan Dunn (NSW) and Rochelle Gilmore (Honda). 

In the U23 category, Hosking was awarded the gold medal ahead of Dunn and Peta Mullens (VIC).

Carly Light (SA) was thrilled to have won her first major title, "I am thrilled to bits and can't really believe it. You have to find something special for the nationals and I guess I found it. I was just sort of testing my legs, the team plan was to have a crack and I thought it is about time I got up there and give it a go,"  said Light

Light attacked at the half way point  and had a clear win with 10 laps to go, "So with ten laps to go, I had already been out there for ages and I thought oh my god what am I doing out here, but I just put my head down and went for it. I gave it everything I had in the time trial and my legs felt fine today and I couldn't believe it when I got a gap and then realised I had to keep going, because once you have a gap you can't give it up cos all the girls want it," added Light

Chloe Hosking (Team Columbia -HTC) was proudly wearing her new Team Columbia-HTC kit for the first time and showed why she will be a top sprinter for the future. It is nice to win the U23 award but I came here to win, said Hosking. I am happy to have beaten the likes of Rochelle Gilmore and Belinda Goss, that is something really special to take away from this race, but it isnt a green and gold jersey," added Hosking

Megan Dunn (NSW) was extremely pleased with her form, I am so happy with my form right now. The best training is racing so to get a couple of medals on the way fills me with confidence, said Dunn. It is great to see how womens racing is developing; there are such a great bunch of young women coming through right now. You only have to see how many U23s are in the top of the results, added Dunn.
