CAMBEWARRA cyclist Natasha Mullany recently finished the second of the five junior tours on the NSW road race calendar.
At the Wagga Wagga Junior Tour held over the Anzac Day long weekend, Natasha was first in the two road stages and first in the criterium stage, breaking away in each race with Nicola Macdonald from the Hunter Districts.
Natasha finished the GC on equal points with Nicola Macdonald but claimed second overall as Macdonald won the time trial stage.
Natasha competed in the Canberra Junior Tour from May 10 to 11.
The Canberra Junior Tour consists of four stages and is one of the
premier tours during the road race season.
This year a strong contingent of junior cyclists from New Zealand were competing, which gave the tour an international dimension.
The Canberra Junior Tour is also the ACT Road Race Championship and Criterium Championship.
Natasha was first in the stage three road race (ACT Road Race Championship) and claimed the gold medal and ACT Championship title with a third in the stage four
criterium (ACT Criterium Championship) and claimed the bronze medal.
Natasha was second in the stage two road race and won the Queen of the Mountain Jersey with 24 points ahead of Jamie Gunning (Queensland) on 13 points.
The next junior tour is the Goulburn Junior Tour over the weekend of May 24 to 25.
