Santos Women's Tour
Stage 2: East End, Adelaide - Stage Details

West Australian Melissa Hoskins has made it two-from-two for ORICA-AIS at the Santos Women’s Tour, taking out a sprint victory on the second stage criterium this evening.

Hoskins’ win follows the efforts of teammate Valentina Scandolara who soloed to the first stage win yesterday to claim the leader’s jersey.  The Italian finished safely in today’s bunch to retain the leader’s jersey going into the penultimate and most difficult day of the four-day Tour.

Like Scandolara, the Santos Women’s Tour is the first race of 2015 for Hoskins who was thrilled to enjoy instant success.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been able to throw the hands in the air, so I’m pretty stoked to be able to start the season off on such a good run,” Hoskins said.
