Santos Women's Tour
Stage 4: Victoria Park - Stage Details

Australian time trial champion Katrin Garfoot has taken out her first Tour victory by sprinting to third place on the final stage of the Santos Women’s Tour in Adelaide this evening.

Garfoot entered the Victoria Park criterium in the lead but on equal time with three other riders – Lauren Kitchen (Hytec Products), Shelley Olds (Cylance Professional Cycling) and Danielle King (Wiggle High5).

As the race wound up for a bunch kick ORICA-AIS put their full support into the sprint train to set the 34-year-old up and defend the jersey.

In the end it was Kimberley Wells (High5 Dream Team) who claimed the last stage honours but Garfoot’s third place got the better of her general classification rivals to secure the overall title.

Despite having surprised herself in the previous day’s sprints, Garfoot admitted there were nerves.

“I was nervous at the beginning, not just at the end,” she said after the stage.
