Forsyth sprints to opening stage win

SiS - NSW racer is first leader

All eyes were firmly fixed on the Lake Wendouree circuit today for the first stage of the Honda Hybrid Women's Tour and spectators were not disappointed as Sue Foresyth secured the red leader's jersey with a win for Team SiS NSW.

In a fast-paced circuit race, Foresyth held off VIS Women's Road Team's Chloe Mcconville in second and Loren Rowney from Bundaberg Sugar in third.

Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist and double stage winner in the inaugural Honda Hybrid Women's Tour in 2009, Rochelle Gilmore said it was a different experience watching from the sidelines.

"It's not easy being on the sidelines when I'd much rather be out there racing, but I'm glad to be here supporting the riders as an Ambassedor for Honda."

"The Women's Tour is the first race of the summer season in Australia and our domestic riders were well prepared for stage one. It's significant that the riders who placed first, second and third today all finished with the same time, as this could have implications for the overall winner."

"Sue Foresyth has a lot of potential and I'm looking forward to seeing how she rides over the coming days."

"I was surprised to see the top rider in the Russian national team didn't finish in the top 10 and it will be interesting to see how the team regroups and attacks tomorrow," she said.

The women's event runs alongside the UCI-sanctioned Jayco Herald Sun Tour and continues with stage 2 in Geelong on Thursday, October 13.
