| Feb 6: After winning the yellow jersey in the first stage of the 2020 Herald Sun Tour, being held in regional Victoria, Cuban cyclist Arlenis Sierra, riding with the Astana team has finished third overall in the race. |
This comes on the back of winning Cadel’s Race in 2019 and coming second this year in the same race.
After winning the first stage of the Herald Sun Tour, Arlenis, speaking through an interpreter said “I’m very happy for this victory. I had a lot of support from the team and I know the strongest team was Mitchelton-Scott because they are four strong girls. But with a united team we can do good things, I think.” “Well, tomorrow is a very hard stage,” she said via the interpreter. “But we have the leader jersey so we try to defend. We will work as a team and see what happens because it’s a very long climb. “We will see how the legs will respond too.”
