Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic - Women
Criterium 2: Eastern Park, Geelong - Stage Details

On the eve of her national title defense, Australian road race champion Gracie Elvin has put on a dominant display to take out the second stage of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic in Geelong’s Eastern Park this afternoon.

Hot and extremely windy conditions made it a challenging day of racing but Elvin made it look easy, escaping from the peloton after twenty minutes of racing and holding on to win by one minute 31seconds.

“A bit stupid at first,” Elvin said of her solo move.

“It’s very lonely out there. It’s not the best way to win a bike race but it’s also a fantasy way to win a bike race too, on your own.”
