|The ladies stayed together until the first prime, which was won by|
|Charlene, coming up the outside of the group. Glenda edged out|
|Mykelti for second while Jessica sat on the back. Then the14 year|
|old Vipyrs rider made a strong effort and opened up a|
|small gap which grew to 15 seconds by the second prime,|
|which she won comfortably. Charlene had dropped back and|
|Mykelti and Glenda worked together to try and bring Jessica back,|
|with Mykelti taking second points in the prime. Jesica was now into|
|time trial mode and continued to take time out of the rest of the|
|riders, finiishing first, in 27′ 12”, 26 seconds ahead of Mykelti, who|
|took second place, 3 seconds ahead of Glenda, with Charlene|
|coming in a further 57 seconds down. Jessica is a fine example|
|of what a structures road and track programme can do.
