Santos Women's Cup
Angaston Road Race - Stage Details

Amanda Spratt soloed to victory in Angaston after launching a powerful attack at the base of Menglers Hill. The perfectly timed punch distanced her two breakaway companions and afforded Spratt an unassailable gap en route to victory on the second stage of the Santos Women's Cup. Valentina Scandolara proved best of the rest, crossing the line in second place ahead of Jo Hogan (Boss Racing). Overnight race leader Loes Gunnewijk managed second in the bunch kick, seventh place on the stage, to hold onto the series lead. 

“All in all, it was a fantastic effort. Spratty rode solo to the finish. Valentina was able to sprint in for second from what was left in the group behind. Loes picked up second in the bunch sprint to marginally extend her lead. We’re in a really good situation going into the last stage.” - Sport Director Gene Bates

“I was never really certain that I would stay away. There weren’t any markers on the road, so I only had my SRM to use to measure distance. I was hoping it was as accurate as possible. Inside the final half kilometre, that’s maybe when I realized that I could do it.” - Amanda Spratt
