Team VIRTU Cycling ready for Women’s Herald Sun Tour
The last race in Australia awaits Team VIRU Cycling for this time. Tuesday the team are ready at the start in the 2-day-race Women’s Herald Sun Tour.
After three weeks in Australia Team VIRTU Cycling heads out for their third race Down Under. The 2-days-race Women’s Herald Sun Tour starts out with a 123,5-kilometer stage, that is followed by a short time trial Wednesday.
Tuesdays stage is the most demanding of the race and also the most decisive. With two big climbs on the route, whereas the biggest one has its peak 20 kilometers before the finish, it will be a big challenge for the riders. And a difficult decent also awaits the riders towards Healesville where a winner will be found.
For Team VIRTU Cycling the most important part is still to become a unit, and that will be the focus point in Women’s Herald Sun Tour.
“We want a solid race, where everyone is racing as a team. We are going to use it as a preparation race, we have already done well in the previous races, and we just need to continue down that path and get some fitness and experience out of it,” sports director at Team VIRTU Cycling Carmen Small says.
“We will of course go out and do our best, we don’t have our TT-bikes here, but the girls are motivated to finish of strong,” she says.
The first stage Women’s Herald Sun Tour starts Tuesday with a 123,5-kilometer stage with start and finish in Healesville.
