Mactier out of Bay Crits

Australian Olympic pursuit silver medalist Katie Mactier is out of the Jayco Bay Classic criterium series, which starts today. Mactier is recovering from a bout of pneumonia that put her in hospital for New year's Eve.

Mactier spent five days on a drip, but is now on the mend. "I had a chest infection two months ago and got rid of it," she told AAP. "Last Tuesday, I woke up and felt like I'd been hit by a car and that night I had a raging temperature. It hit me from out of nowhere. I've never been so sick in my whole life. I'm feeling a million times better, although I'm still on a lot of antibiotics."

Mactier had been due to lead the Victorian Institute of Sport team.
