Jayco Herald Sun Tour - Race Overview

After a second place last weekend at Cadel Road Race, Lucy Kennedy has gone one better at the Lexus of Blackburn Jayco Herald Sun Tour, taking the final stage win and overall title in emphatic style today. 

Kennedy used the move of world championship silver medalist Amanda Spratt to bridge across on the final climb before leaving her Mitchelton-SCOTT teammate in her wake, on route to a solo victory. 

A gap of 39seconds over the line to Spratt, who won a two-up sprint for second, gave the pair top two on the general classification to perfectly wrap up their Australian summer.
