A couple of hours before the men's event, the first round of the three-race Advertiser Women's Criterium Series opened the racing in Adelaide with a victory by last year's series winner Jenny MacPherson (Carnegie Caufield/VIS). A photo was needed to separate MacPherson from Kate Bates (NSW) with Bridget Evans (Fast-Practice third.

It was a high-speed, attacking race. "There was so many attacks during the race; I knew it was draining everyone's legs, so that's why I just tried to keep in the seat as long as I could," said the 28 year-old from South Yarra, Victoria. "Whether it was won by one centimetre or ten, it didn't matter!"
