Some of you may remember 8 months ago I bought my girlfriend a road bike for her birthday. Not long after that she went into a womens 2 day race and managed to take out the GC in the Cat 2. Not bad for a first attempt.


After a fair bit of training and racing she has just returned from the Australian Nationals and Jayco Bay Series where she finished 10 overall in both the Crits and the National Road Race. Cat 1. There were international riders, all the Australian Institute of Sport Riders and basically the best females Australia has.

It will be interesting to see where she is in another 8 months time!

Needles to say we have made every mistake in the book along the way, we are constantly learning all the little things that can make or break a race and to this end I am posting simply to thank all of you who post advice and information which helps no end. Cheers people.

The mens National Title was won by none other than Stuart O'Grady.

Congrats! But how did she get to race cat 2 if she's never done road race before? Different racing rules?

Cool! Must have been some bike you started her out on. What was it?
