Mars Cycling Australia Road Championships
Road Race - Women - Stage Details

When ORICA-AIS missed the second significant break during the Australian National Road Championships, Gracie Elvin jumped to follow Sport Director Dave McPartland’s instruction to get across to the three riders up the road. Elvin bridged alone to join what would become the race winning move and won the four-up sprint to take the biggest win of her young career. 

“I’m pretty excited. It’s great to be part of a team that’s so happy for me. I think that’s the best part at the moment. I had the support on the road during the race, and I have my team’s excitement for me now with the title. Everyone is really happy, and that makes me even more happy.” - Gracie Elvin
