It was a single day, five-stage format, stages ranged from some punchy one minute thirty runs to the most physical top to bottom stage at four and a half minutes. We were able to race the stages in any order we wanted and I opted to get the hardest one out the way first. This is one of those stages where there’s more pedaling than descending and you keep thinking to yourself “surely other people aren’t going this slow?!” Anyway, with that one out the way, I felt really good on all the other stages with no crashes or mechanicals. It just felt really good to be back doing what I love. Once the results were in, I came out on top with almost a clean sweep of stages which I was stoked with because we have a pretty stacked field of riders in Adelaide.
