In the women’s Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series it remains Drops at the head of the Series, but there were new team and individual winners thanks to Emily Nelson and Team Breeze.
Run off in sunny and dry conditions, the women’s race came down to a bunch sprint, with Nelson taking her first win in the Series and Team Breeze riders filling three of the top six places. The result extended Drops’ lead at the top of the standings, with Breeze moving into second spot and Team WNT falling back to third place.
