Peta Mullens wins Santos Festival of Cycling stage 1



Peta Mullens (Roxsolt LIV Sram) unleashed a powerful sprint from the lead group to take out the opening stage of the four-day Santos Festival of Cycling event, which replaces the cancelled Santos Women’s Tour Down Under.  

A split in the peloton, that left pre-race favourite Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange) chasing, meant it was down to a bunch of about a dozen sprinting for the win of the National Road Series race. Mullens, who has a long list of Australian titles on both the mountain bike and road, took a clear win with Ruby Roseman-Gannon’s (ARA Pro-Racing) second boding well for her overall chances.
