Victoria’s Alyssa Polites (Sydney-Uni Staminade) reigned supreme at the U19 individual time trial championships, edging out 2019 champion Frankie Sewell (Roxsolt-ATTAQUER), and Taswegian Catelyn Turner (TIS Racing).
When asked how the race unfolded for her, Polites said “At the start, it was straight over the hill, and then it was trying to get tempo and leg speed, a lot of wind out there, but otherwise it was a good hard course.”
“This is my first U19 race, so it was a longer distance than my junior races, it was really challenging!”
