July 23/00 12:55 pm - Redden Starts Last Lap
Posted by Editor on 07/23/00
As the women start their last lap, Chrissy Redden's lead has increased to 7:35 over Amber Chorney, with Trish Sinclair a further 10 seconds back. Kiara Bisaro is fourth, just ahead of Marie-Helene Premont. Apparently it is so hot and wet up on the climb that the mud bogs are now steaming, and riders come out of the woods trailing clouds of black flies...
Note: Lesley Tomlinson retired after flatting in the first couple of kilometres of the race.
