HAVANA. Cuban Arlenis Sierra (Astana Women) won Saturday’s Cadel Evans Great Ocean route, a 113.3-kilometer course with start and finish in the city of Geelong.
Sierra came alone to the finish line with a time of 3 hours, 7 minutes and 10 seconds, ahead of local riders Lucy Kennedy (Mitchelton-Scott) and Amanda Spratt (AUS / Mitchelton-Scott), second and third, in that order .
According to the digital site cyclingnews.com, the Cuban cyclist attacked in the last four kilometers of the race, which led to her triumph.
“It was better to attack than to remain on the wheel of the two runners of Mitchelton,” the 26-year-old Cuban told the press. (Copaci Press)
