The Women's Tour Down Under - Spratt's to lose?
The international women’s peloton rolls into Adelaide for the 2020 edition of the Women’s Tour Down Under but after winning all four editions of the UCI race, three with Amanda Spratt, is it Mitchelton-Scott's race to lose? Can anyone else take it to Spratt and her team?

“We had a really strong team today,” Spratt said.

“The girls gave me an excellent lead out going into the final climb. We made the race really hard.

"We had three out of five riders in the front group, just trying to get rid of the others. On paper, Ruth (Winder) and Liane (Lippert) were faster than me but it was such a hard race and I know I have a good sprint in such a situation.”
