Just days after being crowned Australian Time Trial champion for the second successive year, Katrin Garfoot has won the women’s road race at the 2017 MARS Cycling Australia Road National Championships in Buninyong.
Beating Orica-Scott teammate and 2016 national champion Amanda Spratt in a hard-fought sprint for the finish, the pair enjoyed a strong lead of up to 2-minutes ahead of the main group.
Lucy Kennedy finished third in the 10 lap / 102 km event that got underway at 8am. The final event in the 2017 Nationals, the 18 lap / 183.6km men’s road race, is scheduled to start at 2:15pm. The event will be broadcast on SBS Viceland and webcast via the SBS Cycling Central Facebook page.
