This morning Lauren Kitchen, NSW, finished 2nd in a star studded field at the Oceania Time Trial Titles held in Toowoomba, QLD. Kitchen completed the course in a time of 33 minutes and 44 second, 49 seconds from the top step of the podium. Kitchen, who is coached by Brad McGee has chosen to focus on the Individual Time Trial event recently with the goal to become a more complete rider.
“I’ve really wanted to work on my time trialling over the last year or so as I think its a discipline that I needed to improve in and with Brad’s guidance I knew I had a good environment to do this”
Lauren was the 6th rider off in a relatively small field however the quality was high, with Commonwealth Games Bronze medalist, Katrin Garfoot (QLD), taking the top honours.
“To be within 50 seconds of Katrin was really a boost for me as I now know I can be more competitive if I focused more on the event”
“Im really happy with this result and Im now focused on Sunday to have another top performance”
Lauren will compete in the Road Race event on Sunday to be held in Goombungee, approximately 40km from Toowoomba.
