2016 Australian National Championships: Women’s Criterium Photo Gallery

A decision to take up cycling as a hobby on the advice of a friend four years ago has paid dividends for unheralded Wagga cyclist Sophie Mackay as she claimed the biggest win of her career in Ballarat today – the national criterium title.

Mackay, who races domestically in the Subaru National Road Series with Specialized Racing, upset Lizzie Williams (VIC) and former champion Lauren Kitchen (NSW) to win the women’s criterium at the 2016 Mars Cycling Australia Road National Championships.
