Nettie Edmondson: “We’re all just hoping to enjoy Guangxi and to go out with a bang”

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling will line up for it’s last ever road race at the Tour of Guangxi on Sunday, on a much-changed course from last year’s first edition. The black and orange team will be fielding some of its biggest stars, with former Italian Champion Elisa Longo Borghini, French time trial champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Australian track stars Nettie Edmondson and Amy Cure, as well as British sisters Lucy and Grace Garner.

“This is my first time in this race,” Edmondson said. “Last year was the first edition, and it was very flat, so for the second year they’ve added two hills. So it’s going to be a very unpredictable race, because it’s flat for about 85km, and then there’s a Cat 3 climb and a Cat 2 climb straight afterwards.

“It’s going to be interesting to see where everyone’s at, because some of the girls will have had a break after Worlds, and then coming back in, and others will have had an earlier break and will be targeting this,” the Australian explained. “It’s going to be interesting to see if the girls that  did the Worlds have held on to their form or not, whereas the sprinters are going to be hoping they can hold on over those pinchers.

“Whereas the climbers are going to be trying to break it up, like the Mitchelton-Scott team in particular has definitely sent over a bit of a climbing team,” she added.

With Longo Borghini and Cordon-Ragot expected to match the best riders over the course’s two tough climbs, and sprinters Edmondson and Lucy Garner able to compete with the fastest in the World, the Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling team should be as competitive as ever in it’s final race.

“As for us, we’ve got all options covered,” Edmondson said. “We’ve got hill climbers in Elisa and Audrey, we’ve got some sprinters here, and we’ve got some all rounders here. So I think we’ll have most of the options covered, but we’re just hoping to have a really good race.

“It’s the last race of the Women’s WorldTour, and it’s also the last Wiggle High5 race ever,” she added. “It’s been a big few years of ups and downs with this team, and we’re all just hoping to have some fun, to enjoy it, and to go out with a bang!”
