Lion Foundation Club Road Nationals

Day 3 - Saturday, October 20, 2007

Another gold for Shanks

Alison Shanks lived up to expectations today when she won the Senior Womens Road Race at the Lion Foundation Club Road Cycling Nationals in windy and cool conditions. Competiting in her last road race before she switches her focus to the track, Shanks took the lead in the last lap of the 114 km race and crossed the finish line with a minute between her and second place Penny Pawson (Counties Manukau).

Today's win gives Shanks double gold after winning the Time Trial on Thursday. Shanks will be riding for New Zealand in Invercargill next month at the Oceania Championahips where she is aiming to pick up qualification points for the Beijing Olympics.

Former Oceania Gold Medalist and National Road and Track Champion, Annalisa Farrell (Pegasus), blitzed the field in the Womens 1-2 Masters race. Farrell had the win sewn up from the start of the race, her winning margin so big she was changed and on the finish line supporting her fellow competitiors when the bunch came in 8 minutes later.

Farrell rides as a stoker for the AWD Tandem and her next goal is to qualify and ride at Beijing next year.
