Credit to them, they were so strong out there today.” “The final climb was pretty tough but I managed to hold on and take the overall win!” “Coming into the final climb with two kilometres to go at the final corner I made sure I positioned myself on Ruth’s wheel. I was planning to stay on her wheel up the climb, and she just got away from me at the end there. Ainslee Bakker was so strong today, all credit to her, it was a really good ride by her” said Baker. In the final Subaru National Road Series standings for 2015 Ruth Corset finished on 72 points, narrowly beating Georgia Baker who finished second on 65 points, while Tessa Fabry was third on 29 points.

High5 Dream Team have stamped their authority on the 2015 Tour of the Goldfields, taking out both stages on Saturday with a dominant team time trial performance and line honours for Georgia Baker in the afternoon road race. In a crash marred finish Baker was happy to come through unscathed and keep her composure to secure the win ahead of Julia Kalotas (WA) and Chloe Hosking (ACT). “I think it was a great show of teamwork today,” said Baker after the race. “The other teams put it to us and made our job of defending the jersey quite difficult out there, but I think it goes to show we have such a strong team both individually and when we come together we really put it on the line for one another. To take the win was really the icing on the cake for today. “Unfortunately about 500 meters from the finish line I heard a crash behind me and it sounded horrible, so I hope everyone who was involved in that is ok,” she continued. “For a second I was worried about my teammates, then realised I still had to sprint. I went for the line and just beat Julia home.” Stage 2 Team Time Trial Earlier in the day, High5 Dream Team beat Total Rush Hyster and Bicycle Superstore in the 20 kilometre team time trial around Burrumbeet....
