Australian Championships - Women
Criterium - Stage Details

Just one day after winning the final day of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic in Williamstown, Jessica Allen has once again soloed to victory, this time to be awarded a conveted green and gold jersey as the 2017 Australian criterium champion.

23-year-old Allen, along with 22-year-old teammate Jenelle Crooks, dominated the 30 lap criterium, initiating or marking all of the moves before Allen escaped solo with five laps of the 1.1km course remaining.

“I’m lost for words,” an emotional Allen said on the finish line. “It’s been an awesome few days with Orica and I’m just a bit emotional to be honest. Thank you to my teammates for believing in me.”
