The Anna Millward Diary

Australian Anna Millward (Wilson until her marriage in 2000) is one of the best women's cyclists in the world, and was ranked number 1 for the first part of 2000. She has won races everywhere, from time trials in France, World Cup races in Switzerland to stage races in the USA, and was the first cyclist ever to break the Hour Record under the "new" UCI rules. Anna possesses an incredible sprint and this combined with her power and determination makes her a formidable cyclist on any terrain. She is also one of the friendliest and most optimistic people you could ever meet.

Australian Open Championships - Women's TT

Ballarat, Victoria, January 10, 2002

Hi everyone,

Today we raced the Australian National Time Trial title in Buninyong, just outside of Ballarat. The course was 28 km in length, with a climb for the first couple of km and then the notorious dead roads and false flats of country Victoria. We had great conditions with a warm 30 degree day and a light breeze blowing.

Sara Carrigan claimed her first national title today, winning in a time of 41.19 with an average speed of 40.7 km/h. I ran second at 41.55 (40.1 km/h) and Hayley Rutherford was third in 46.19. Then came Margaret Hemsley, Alison Wright, and Katie Mactier, with my fellow Saturn rider Kristy Scrymgeour finishing in 11th place.

We have one day of rest before racing the National Road Race Championships on Saturday.

Cheers Anna
