Lauren Kitchen sprints to Victory in Launceston Cycling Classic Race
Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling's Lauren Kitchen sprinted to victory in the Stan Siejka Cycling Classic in Launceston, Tasmania, to take her second win of the Australian summer to date. The 23-year-old was the fastest of a small group of riders that arrived to contest the finish of the downtown race, which included German teammate Charlotte Becker, and the New South Wales rider took a clear victory ahead of Liv/Giant's Nicole Whitburn and Specialized Securitor's Lizzie Williams.
With Kitchen set to leave Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling at the end of 2013, the race saw her take victory in her very last competitive outing in the black and orange colours.
"It was a really great way to finish my year with Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling and it definitely wasn't possible without the support of my teammates, particularly Lotte who gave me the perfect lead out," she said.
"A great way to finish the year and my run with Wiggle Honda," Kitchen added.
Alongside Kitchen and Becker, the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling team also included Australians Rochelle Gilmore and Jo Tralaggan, and New Zealand criterium champion Emily Collins. The orange and black squad dominated the race, with several aggressive moves that eventually forced the small group clear, from which Kitchen was to eventually sprint to victory.
