Jon Miles reports… Rachel was 2nd in the opening time trial along the Coast Road beaten by Eliena Eggl of Germany by two seconds. Rachel then followed this at the difficult St Martins circuit with 4th place.

The St Pauls bypass race the following day saw Rachel in 3rd place again with Clare Leaver guesting for GB Cycles winning the stage. Stage 4 was another win for German rider Eliena with defending champion Iona Sewell in 2nd place.

The event was an excellent early season stage race and this years edition saw the biggest field for the women’s race and for such a small Federation as Malta, the race as always, was interesting and well organised.
