Triple for Chloe in Ladies Tour of Qatar (UCI 2.1)

As in 2013 Kirsten Wild dominated this race with 3 stage wins. She also won the overall. Chloe Hosking was our strongest rider and she impressed with powerful riding over the 4 stages, taking 2 3d places on the stages 1 and 3, and ending up on 3d place overall in the GC. Lauren Kitchen showed a strong addition to the team with an impressive 15th place in the GC.  Audrey, Tone, Thea and Emilie added to the teamwork with attacks, leadouts and defensive work. A good first stage race for the season!

Silver to Lauren in the Australian Championships

Australian national championships are just completed and we ended up with a surprising but pleasing silver medal for our newcomer Lauren Kitchen. Surprising because of the hard course that favored more specialist climbers. In the final sprint of 10 riders including 4 GreenEDGE riders, Gracie Elvin won narrowly over Lauren in the final sprint.  Lauren did all 3 races, starting with a 9th place in the ITT, continued with bronze in the criterium (when Chloe Hosking went down in an early crash), and completing a great week with the silver in the road race.
