An absolutely huge year from Amanda Spratt, recognised as she took out Cycling Australia's Elite Female Road Cyclist of the Year award.
Riding for Australia team Mitchelton-Scott, Spratt delivered a number of world class results including a silver medal at the Road World Championships.
First mountain finish of the Giro this year. Stage win and the Maglia Rosa. Today was a good day 😁. This really was such a TEAM effort. Special thanks to @gracieelvin @sar_roy @joliendhoore @jessallen1993 who have been doing bulk work the last days making sure Vleuty and I have been able to save as much energy as possible. Then on the climb @annemiekvanvleuten made a strong attack that set me up for my winning move. Thanks ladies! Happy I can repay them for the hard work the last days. Tomorrow is a 15kms uphill TT- I’m ready to keep fighting with my team 😊 📸 @gettyimages • • • • #giro #girorosa #girorosa18 #girorosa2018 #italy #uciwwt #womenscycling #stage6 #gerolaalta #winner #teamwork #magliarosa #specialfeeling #thanksteam
