Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Giorgia Bronzini completed her almost total domination of the Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic - the Bay Crits - with a powerful sprint victory on stage four, taking her personal total in the race up to three. The former two-time World road champion hit the finish line several lengths clear of the battle for second place once again, which was taken by compatriot Valentina Scandolara (Orica-AIS) ahead of Tiffany Cromwell (Specialized-Securitor).

The race had seen a five-rider breakaway escape early, with Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Linda Villumsen present. The New Zealander picked up second place in the first intermediate sprint, and first in the second, to secure the green points jersey for Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling teammate Peta Mullens.

The break was caught at the start of the final lap, however, and Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Charlotte Becker led Bronzini out to perfection once again.
