The third edition of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race for women was a spectacular race yesterday in Geelong. Crosswinds, undulations and constant attacks meant the Deakin University sponsored race was dramatic from start to finish.
The race was won by Annemiek van Vleuten (GEW) from Ruth Winder (UHC) and Mayuko Hagiwara (WHT) from a five rider break that formed in the closing kilometres.
Despite efforts from all five riders of CANYON//SRAM Racing, the team was unable to set up a winning situation. In form duo Alexis Ryan and Tiffany Cromwell were unable to match the leaders on the final two climbs of the race. Cromwell finished just behind the chase group, 49 seconds behind the winner.
