She has a good head on her shoulders for a 19 year old.
Will be interesting to see what she can do operating as a full time pro, rather than a student that rides a bit on the side

Agreed. Every interview I’ve heard, even when much younger, she sounds really grounded, and smart about her career. Looking forward to the racing.

Feelin' a bit rrranty
So no Aussies will be racing this year or will riders on big teams eg Canyon get an exemption?

The following exceptions to the above apply:
Riders that are contracted to overseas-based UCI registered trade teams

So Bronson/Moir/Fearon/Lucas et al should still be racing (if they want) but the privateers/federation riders (and maybe the Zwars given their team is Au-based?) won’t be getting the AC backing to enter.
