In the under 23 category, Specialized Women’s Racing rider Jaime Gunning finished in eighth place to claim the title ahead of defending elite and under 23 champion Sarah Gigante. Ruby Roseman-Gannon (ARA Cycling) finished with bronze.
“It’s pretty special, this year is my last in the under 23s and I haven’t won an under 23 category yet so to come away with this win is really special and to do it with such an awesome team makes it even better,” said Gunning.
“Three laps in when the two Mitchelton-Scott riders went off the front, we really weren’t anticipating that to happen then when we realised that it was really getting out quite far we turned all our focus onto the under 23s.
“I was super stoked to have my team there at the finish with me.”
