Grace Anderson took a brilliant victory in the best young rider’s classification at the Santos Women’s Tour. As she gets ready to take on the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race we took the chance to catch up with her on the RoadCycling podcast to talk about the Women’s Tour, the National Team, this weekend’s race and her season with Team Illuminate.
It was a triumph from the New Zealand National Team of Grace Anderson, Lydia Rippon, Mikayla Harvey, Rylee McMullen and Deborah Paine. Without a strict game plan, and up against the notoriety of the likes of Mitchelton-Scott and the strength of the Uni-SA team, the Kiwis played their own game and it paid off in spades as they charged away with the best young rider’s jersey; taking a 1-2 with Grace Anderson and Mikayla Harvey at the top of the classification.
