Kelly Cycle Coaching had several riders compete in Lorne over the weekend at Amy’s Otway Tour and Amy’s Gran Fondo.

Bec Stephens and Fiona MacMillan competed in the NRS event, held in memory of Amy Gillett.  The crit was a hotdog (up and back) along the main street of Lorne.  Both ladies did well to hold their own against top NRS riders.

Bec was with the front group until 8km to go in the road race, when she was unhinged.  A great effort given she was racing with a fractured rib from a fall at King Valley NRS.
