Refreshed and Ready

Lauren returns to racing with the International Ladies’ Tour of Thüringen beginning tomorrow and running for seven days until July 23rd. The eight stage race offers a tough course with rolling terrain and technical finishes song with a 19km ITT on stage three to sort out the peloton. This will mark the stage of the second half of Lauren’s season as she now has an eye set on the World Championships in Richmond USA in September.

Over the past six weeks Lauren has had some time to reflect and recover from the first part of her season which included 5 UCI wins along with another 5 podium finishes,

“Im really hoping to pick up where I left off, but Im not sure where Im at yet form wise, Ive worked hard for the last month or so to be as best prepared for this race and I am really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things”

The past two weeks, Lauren has spent at Altitude in Livigno with the Australian U23 mens and Para cycling teams,

“It was a fantastic place for training and I was really lucky to have great weather when I was there as well, the boys were super to train with and I hope I can show that in the upcoming races”
