Mitchell.
It was a great moment for Sarah Roy and her Orica-Scott team when the former Aussie criterium champ won stage 4 of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour. It was the biggest win of Roy’s career and her team’s first Women’s WorldTour win for the year. Unfortunately it was followed by a crash just past the finish line as Roy lost her balance while celebrating.
Roy hurt her hand in the crash but was able to race the next day and finish the tour.
