In the under 23 race, West Australian Rebecca Mackey (Wormall Civil) finished fourth overall and claimed gold in the age group ahead of Ellen Skerritt (QLD) and Jenelle Crooks (Holden Women’s Cycling).
Mackey, who earned silver in the under 23 women’s criterium on Wednesday night, crossed the line to post the fastest time of the day before Heather, Gillow and O’Donnell surpassed the 21 year old.
“It’s amazing, I can’t believe that I did it. I’ve been training really hard for this event, I’m so happy,” said Mackey. “It started to rain on the turnaround and the wind picked up.
“It was pretty horrible conditions but I have raced in worse. It was a pretty tough course and the rain was helping at all.”
