World Cup – China

World Cup, Chongming Island, China, 138.6km

World Cup Podium

The Australian National Team (excluding me) were on the front of the main bunch chasing groups back all day, the team can blame me for making their job so hard as I missed an important break on the bridge (that connects Chongming Island to the mainland). Australia chased for a total of 65km today pulling back break after break. It was a 100% commitment from the team to ensure I would have an opportunity to sprint for a podium position.

I finished 3rd today, 3rd on GC at the Tour of Chongming UCI 2.1 tour and 3rd in the sprint classification. The Australian National Team also finished 3rd in the team’s classification.

I don’t think I’ll ever say I’m satisfied with 3rd place but I’m not disappointed, I gained more experience sprinting against the world’s best and look forward to doing it again on Sunday at the World Cup.

Today’s stage was rather uneventful, not too much happened! There were a few crashes and unfortunately one of my Australian team mates, Shara Gillow fell hard- but she’s a tough cookie and was able to get up and rejoin the main group!

I sat out the first intermediate sprint but managed to score a bonus second in the second intermediate sprint, and then it was time to focus on the finish.

Tour Of Chongming Island – Stage 1

Stage One: Chongbei – Shanghai Fusheng Cup, Chongming Island, China, 72.5km

Dirty Girls!

I had a great feeling out there today but unfortunately I didn’t have the greatest result!

It was evident after the first two intermediate sprints at 29km and 46km that HTC Columbia’s Ina Teutenberg was on fire! Ina looked very explosive and took the first two sprints comfortably. Cervelo’s Kirsten Wild took second in each intermediate sprint and I was 3rd.
