Strong Support From SA Women for 2017 SLCC Race Series
20 September 2017.
The Adelaide Parklands hosted Round 6 of the 2017 Skinny Lattes Race Series on September 17th, delivering up a perfect spring day for riders and officials.
Eighty Eight Women ranging in age from 14 – 65+ pinned on a number to compete in either the 6 events across the Road Race Series, or dip their toes in for an individual event. Since the inception of this series 6 years ago, the interest and support from local riders has steadily built, providing opportunities for women of all ages and abilities to compete in a safe and friendly environment.
Race Director Lynette Collins explained that club members and master’s riders had always gotten behind the series and supported it, “the big difference in the last couple of years 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”.
