Lauren Kitchen Wins Sprint Jersey At 2015 Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic And Finishes Second Overall!
Lauren Kitchen wrapped up a successful week of racing in the fourth and final stage of the Bay Cycling Classic in Williamstown, Victoria yesterday as teammate Kimberley Wells sprinted to second on the stage to claim Roxsolt’s third podium of the week. Kitchen went into the stage with an unbeatable lead in the race’s sprint competition after consistent racing throughout the four race series.  With the green jersey safely in the back pocket of the Roxsolt team they turned their attention to claiming yellow after Lauren’s strong finish on Sunday’s third stage in Portarlington saw her move to within two points of the race lead.
“My form was really unknown coming into this week,” she said.
“I knew I had been training hard but I hadn’t done any intensity so to be able to back up everyday and be at the pointy end of the bike race I’m very happy,” Lauren finished.

9th Place and Drama in the World Champs Team Time Trial

21.September: From a 13th place in 2013 we came back to the TTT with one single goal: To be top 10. With a even matched team machine with 6 good riders/3 good staff  we managed this, even though the dreadful crash of Rabo women gave us an extra place up than we else would have got. We wish a speedy recovery to the Rabo girls. Specialized Lululemon demonstrated that they are the world champions in this dicipline, no matter who they have on the team Results here.
