Chloe wins Tour of South West

 

Congratulations to Central Districts member Chloe Moran on winning the ‘Women A’ category of the Tour of the South West held at Warnambool, Victoria over the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of May.

Chloe started the tour strong by finishing second in the first stage time trial over 12.1kms, and only 12.37 seconds behind the stage winner.

Chloe finished in the bunch sprint for the stage 2 road race over 85 kms but importantly 34 seconds ahead of the stage 1 winner which gave Chloe the leaders jersey over night heading in to the 3rd and final stage criterium on the Sunday.

A crash in the last stage was not going to deter Chloe as she was able to get back on the bike and finish in the leading bunch.  This was enough for Chloe to protect her lead and take the overall win for the Tour.

Congratulations Chloe on a job well done.

Below is a more detailed report on the race from The Standard on Chloe’s win, including a couple of comments from the winner.
