Pajot Hills Classic - Race Overview

Former Australian criterium champion Sarah Roy was the highest placed finisher for ORICA-AIS today, sprinting to eleventh place in the new UCI 1.2 category racePajot Hills Classic.

The riders fought all day to force a breakaway but with the presence of a strong tail wind the race concluded with bunch sprint won by Marianna Vos (Rabo-Liv).

Sport director Gene Bates took positives out of today, after the team were well represented and aggressive throughout the race.

"It was a really fast race, we had a tailwind for the majority of the day," said Bates. "The action really started to happen when we got to the Muur van Geraardsberg as the race blew up and riders began to drop off the back. A large group of around 50riders formed at the front and we had all six riders in there so that was really good."
