Tour of Chongming Island
Stage 1: Chongming Xin Cheng Park - Stage Details

ORICA-SCOTT women got off to a positive start in China at the Tour of Chongming Island today, with Australian sprinter Sarah Roy taking third place after great teamwork in a close run finale.

The former Australian criterium champion looked to be in fine form as a fast and furious eleven lap circuit race unfolded with Kirsten Wild (Cylance-Pro-Cyling) running out the eventual winner from the bunch sprint.

“We expected that it was going to be sprinters paradise and that was definitely how it turned out,” said sport director Martin Barras. “Eleven laps of a flat, wide and sheltered course meant that the nature of the finish was never going to be in doubt.”
