TREK Ladies Series
Round 4, Saturday, August 25, 2007
TREK Ladies series continues it's success!
Ladies braved miserable and rainy conditions to take part in Round 4 of the 2007 TREK Ladies Road Racing Series Today. Whilst the weather wasn't bright and sunny, the weather gods were kind for a couple of hours while 31 women completed the 40km out and back Handicap, which was held at Rosewood.
A strong breakaway saw two D Grade ladies, Rebecca Shipston (Ffast) and Marie-Louise Moseley (Balmoral) safely secure top two placings. The 11 minute handicap from the GO markers to A Grade proved to be too tough with a bunch of riders chasing hard a few km's from the finish, but to no avail.
Line honours in D Grade and first over the line went to Rebecca Shipstone (Ffast) ahead of MarieLouise Moseley (Balmoral), Saskia Decers (Ffast) and Kim Andrew (Lifecycle) rounding out the top four. In C Grade, first place went to Tess Prince (Ipswich) ahead of Simone Grounds (Lifecycle), Sue-Anne McKenzie Smith (Lifecycle) and Heather Kinang (Ffast).
