The new partnership between Northwave and Team Wiggle-High5 continues with success: the Australian sprinter claims the second seasonal win at Melbourne Race, and goes for glory at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Race
If a good beginning bodes well, the partnership between Northwave and Team Wiggle High5 will ensure great satisfactions to both parties. In the early races of the 2018 season with the new Extreme RR shoes, Rochelle Gilmore’s athletes have grabbed two beautiful wins in Australia: after the Santos Women’s Tour opening stage, Annette Edmondson won the Melbourne Race on Thursday January 25th, the traditional Criterium preceding the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Race.
Edmondson saw off to the finish line Giorgia Bronzini and Kendall Ryan, finalizing the perfect teamwork of Rachele Barbieri, Amy Cure, Eri Yonamine and Andrey Cordon. The same line-up will try to conquer the third seasonal win in the race dedicated to Cadel Evans, in Geelong, where Edmondson hopes to assert her sprinters’ skills supported by Extreme RR. In fact, the XFrame® patented technology offers the most comfortable fit, eliminating the points of pressure of the upper on the foot.
