Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic - Women
Criterium 3: Portarlington - Stage Details

Former Australian champion and day one winner Gracie Elvin has mirrored yesterday’s efforts to finish second on day three of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic in Portarlington today.

Her third podium in as many days extends the 27-year-old’s grasp on the overall title, an added bonus for ORICA-AIS who is chasing stage wins and national championship preparation at the four-day event.

“It’s nice to have a bit more of a buffer with the leader’s jersey so that’s an added bonus for us,” Elvin said. “We didn’t come here for the overall so it’s certainly nice to take that away as well.”
