Rendition Homes Santos Women’s Cup

Two podium finishes for the Honda Dream Team at the Rendition Homes Santos Women’s Cup.

The Honda Dream Team made a late decision to add the Women’s TDU support event to our race schedule with the ambition to promote the race- hoping for an official Tour Down Under event in the years to come.

It was a great opportunity to race on Sunday afternoon at Rymil Park in front of thousands of spectators who were gathering to watch the team’s presentation of the men’s TDU.

We raced in Adelaide as a team of 4; Megan Dunn, Tiffany Cromwell, Peta Mullens and myself. Josephine Tomic and Melissa Hoskins were unable to compete due to track commitments.

On day one of the two day event we raced really well until the final meters of the sprint where I lost the race for our team ?. I was positioned well with 200m to go but unfortunately I underestimated the power and speed of Chloe Hosking who jumped early on the opposite side of the road. I knew the line wasn’t far away and the race was lost. I finished 2nd.

Bay Classic 2011

Wow, the Bay Crits went exceptionally well – we never expected to pull off another dream result!

Our Honda Dream Team for the 4 day series was; Megan Dunn, Tiffany Cromwell, Melissa Hoskins, Peta Mullens and myself. We had such a great time together in Geelong!!

We won the first 3 stages and held the Sprint and Leaders Jersey from start to finish, it was just unbelievable.

I guess there’s not too much more to report, we had a great time and we were all fit and healthy. We achieved another goal for this summer!

We, the Honda Dream Team have one more goal, the Tour Down Under Women’s Santos 2 Day Criterium series to be held this Sunday and Monday the 16th & 17th of January.

More after the Tour Down Under events.

Reflections on 2010

As I sit on another domestic flight to Melbourne on the 1st of January 2011 I have a moment to reflect on 2010.

In December I and the Honda Dream Team came together to compete in the inaugural International Honda Insight Grand Prix series, a 5 day criteium series held in NSW Australia.

The race stages took place in Bathurst, Parramatta, Gosford, Coogee and Cronulla from Wednesday through until Sunday the 12th of December.

We, The Honda Dream Team entered the race with a very strong team but we never dreamed of winning every stage, we knew the series win was a very possible goal, We took the races day by day treating every day as a one day race that we wanted to win…  It was an amazing 5 days with Peta winning a stage, Mel winning a stage and I took the other 3 stages and the overall series. Tiff and Jos were the strength of the team, delivering our lead out train to the final 500m in perfect position every race.
