On the final stage of the Battle on the Border, Rebecca Heath (Bicycle Superstore) broke through to claim her first NRS win as she sprinted to victory ahead of Lizzie Williams (to Specialized Securitor) and teammate Kristy Glover. Tessa Fabry held onto her nine second lead ahead of Williams to claim her first overall NRS victory

"I'm thrilled, this is my first National Road Series win, it's just so exciting," said Heath. "It was quite a technical finish and I attacked the girls from about one kilometre to go, I backed myself like my teammates and DS are always encouraging me to do."
Fabry set up her overall victory by taking out the 9.3km time trial on Saturday and despite only having one teammate, Fabry on for the win. Continuing to impress in the NRS, 17-year-old Anna-Leeza Hull (Racing Kangaroos) rounded out the podium in third place, over one minute down on Fabry.

"It's fantastic," said Fabry. "It probably hasn't really sunk in yet, I wasn't really expecting this Tour to be one that I would do well at.

"Kendelle [Hodges] is worth three teammates, she did incredibly well today and yesterday and the day before that as well and I can't thank her enough.

"Lizzie managed to get a couple of seconds on me with her second place in today's race, but in the end it wasn't enough and I'm super stoked."

Williams was happy with her result as she also took out two stage wins

"It was quite suspenseful in the race, we didn't get the win but I'm happy I got second," said Williams.

"I was third wheel coming into the finishing loop because I knew it would be very hard to take over anyone in the last 300 metres, I managed to hold on to second after Emma Viotto (Suzuki/Brumby's) crashed on the second last corner.

"That caused a little split to Tessa but not quite enough."

Ruth Corset (Holden Women's Cycling) retains her overall NRS lead on 39 points although Williams is getting closer to overtaking her on 37 points. Fabry moved up into third place after her victory with 35 points.
