Liv AlUla Jayco Dominate Australian Podium

GreenEDGE Cycling dominated the Australian Criterium Championships as Ruby Roseman-Gannon led home an impressive Liv AlUla Jayco one-two-three. Roseman-Gannon successfully finished off a superb team performance in the women’s race, as she attacked solo to take her second criterium title, with teammates Georgia Baker and Alex Manly locking out the podium places from the bunch sprint behind.

With three gold medals across the opening four events at the Australian National Championships, GreenEDGE Cycling now switch their focus to the ‘big one’ on Sunday, as they look to reclaim both the men’s and women’s road race championships on Mount Buninyong.

Champion Ruby Roseman-Gannon said, “The race was good, a bit windy and nice weather. There wasn’t a lot of aggression early on, but it started getting hard and I actually didn’t feel so good. We had Amber [Pate] covering a lot of the moves early on.

Then I realised that I probably didn’t feel good because actually it had been kind of hard, so that’s when I went and we got it pretty big gap, Gina Ricardo and I, pretty early on. I was working pretty hard and I wasn’t sure whether Gina was feigning a bit, so I started attacking her a bit and she was still holding on and then I eventually dropped her.

I think it’s my first solo win since I became professional and maybe my first ever, so I’m really happy to win today. In the end we got one, two, three so I can’t thank the girls enough, it’s such great team to race with and what a great way to start the year.”
