Gilmore and Honda set new standard

Rochelle Gilmore took out the final stage of the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic in an almost perfect performance that saw her win the overall series and the sprint competition along with her Honda Dream Team securing the teams classification.
After the stage Gilmore made it clear that the bar has now been raised for women’s cycling thanks to the support of her team.
“Honda wants to set a standard that says ‘hey let’s support our women like we support our men’ and they’ve certainly done that,” Gilmore said.

Another day goes to plan! Well nearly…. our plan was to send Tiffany Cromwell of The Honda Dream Team up the road in a break-away. Tiff broke away with two other riders (who had not yet gained points in the series) and worked really hard to keep the small group away. In the end Tiff came 3rd. It was great for me to see another Honda Dream Team mate stand on the podium! Well done Tiff!

Today’s race was much harder for our Honda Dream Team to control, all the other teams were attacking and making the race very hard and fast.

Our team proved that they are the strongest team out there by keeping the race together and being able to hold the pace high on the last lap.

Bay Crits Stage One

Stage One, East Gardens Long Circuit, Victoria. 2nd of January 2010

Stage One Win (

Stage one of the Bay Crit series in the East Gardens of Geelong is my most least liked circuit of the series, there are no corners, no real hills and a fast downhill sprint… the strong headwind sprint was something I did like!

The race started out very calmly with my teammates controlling the race and covering all the moves, the pace picked up a little leading into the first sprint which I was keen to contest, Peta Mullens gave me the perfect lead-out and I took maximum points in that first intermediate sprint.
