Duvnjak Claims Tour Title
31 Dec, 2009

Perseverance and determination pay off well they did for Aucklander, Marina Duvnjak when she claimed the Tineli Nelson Tour de Femme title at the end of the 3 day, 5 stage event.

 

Duvnjak, who commented that it was a tough competition but an enjoyable one, made her move on Stage 4, the Individual Time Trial, and maintained her advantage in the penultimate 80km stage 5, despite some gutsy breakaway attempts.  Early leader, Kate McIlroy (Wtgn) suffered in the time trial but recovered yesterday to finish second on General Classification followed by Karen Fulton (Nelson).

 

The Sprint Ace was already decided going into stage 5.  Emma Petersen (Te Awamutu) having accumulated enough points (28) previously.  Sophie Williamson (Alex) on 13points and Tracy Best (Lwr Hutt) 10points rounded out the top three.

 

Queen of the Mountains for the third year was Aucklander Emma Crum (38pts), Teresa Adam (Akld) was next in line earning 28pts with Kate McIlroy 3rd on 18pts.
