Santos Women's Tour
Stage 1: Mt Torrens - Stage Details

2016 Australian time trial champion Katrin Garfoot has claimed victory on the opening stage of the Santos Women’s Tour in Adelaide today.

Garfoot escaped with a group of seven in the final ten kilometres of the 95km race around Mt Torrens and surprised her breakaway companions with a long launch to the line to secure the win.

“I think it was a surprise because they knew I was the worst sprinter and I knew that too,” Garfoot admitted. “I just had to do something to at least try.”
