Mars Cycling Australia Road National Championships
Women's Time Trial - Stage Details

2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Katrin Garfoot has claimed her first national title, taking out the Mars Cycling Australia Time Trial Championship with a blistering ride in Buninyong today.

After finishing fourth, less than ten seconds off the gold medal, at the 2015 world championships, Garfoot entered the 29.3km race against the clock as one of the favourites and didn’t disappoint finishing in a time of 43minutes 16.37seconds.

Garfoot admitted nerves heading into the race, but was pleased to be able to tick off a major career goal.

“There was a lot of pressure, more than the world championship it felt like, and I gave it my all,” the 34-year-old said. “I was really suffering out there, I was dizzy over the line so it’s not that I didn’t fight. I fought.”
