The next round of the Lattes 2017 Race Series will be one for the climbers with SA's women tackling the Martins Hill circuit multiple times.
In the interest of providing fun competitive racing, the Race Director and Cheif Commissaire have elected to now run a one division handicap race for the senior women.
Junior women race distances: Mass Start 1 lap 39.7km
Senior Women: Handicap Race 56kms
Senior Division Handicap Race A, B, C & D Grade
Online entry is now open until Thursday, June 8th.
Near perfect race conditions greeted SA's women as they tackled the Skinny Lattes Time Trial at Milang on Mothers Day. By the 9 am start time the temperature had lifted, skies were clear and the notorious winds of Lake Alexandria were absent.
The Skinny Lattes Race Series will again provide a valuable opportunity to those Junior and Senior Women targeting the State Time Trial Championships on June 3rd.
Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14th will see a selection of South Australia's keenest riders out testing themselves on the out and back course from Milang to Finniss.
Hardly a breath of wind disturbed the waters of the mighty Murray River today when 40 female cyclists rolled into town and established camp at Sturt Reserve for the annual Skinny Lattes Cycling Club Tour.
The near perfect conditions in the morning saw many of the riders recording personal best times on the out and back Individual Road Time Trial Circuit on the outskirts of town. It was no surprise when U17 Junior rider, Olivia Wheeler, dominated the Junior Divison 1category. Wheeler's ride was strong enough though for her to take out the Fastest Time of the day across all senior grades as well, congratulations Olivia!
Sunday's Road Race course looks deceptively flat on paper but the heavy road surface, ever present lake breeze and undulating bumps was enough to sap the legs of many riders. Despite numerous attacks, A & B grades come down to nail-biting bunch sprints.
The tour consists of three stages, across the two days and has riders competing in Individual Road Time Trial & a Criterium on Saturday, then backing up with a Road Race on Sunday.

Eighty Eighty Women ranging in age from 14 - 65+ pinned on a number for the 2017 Skinny Lattes Cycling Club Race Series. Since the series inception 6 years ago, the interest and support from local riders have steadily built, with this year six race series recording a record number of entries.
Race Director Lynette Collins explained that club members and master's riders had always gotten behind the series and supported it, "the big difference this year is that we had great support from the Junior Women U15-U17 as well as some of the really top riders from around the state".
