Wiggle High5’s Australian won her very first race in the new Northwave Extreme RR shoes on her home soil
The new Northwave-Wiggle High5 partnerships could not have started better, as the British team managed by Rochelle Gilmore managed to secure its first win on the seasonal debut, in Santos Women’s Tour’s stage 1 (Gumeracha - Gumeracha, 115,7 Km), in Australia, on Thursday January 11th.
Annette Edmondson emerged on top in a bunch sprint, exploiting in the best way the benefits of the Ultralight Carbon 15 sole of Northwave Extreme RR, made of 100% unidirectional carbon. Behind the winner, the two time World Champion Giorgia Bronzini was runner-up, whilst Lauretta Hanson completed the day’s podium.
The whole Wiggle High5 Team is equipped with Northwave’s new Extreme RR top-range road shoes, characterized by the XFrame® patented technology, capable of eliminating every pressure point on the upper while securing the snuggest and most comfortable fit.
Edmondson conquered the overall leadership with 6 seconds of advantage on Bronzini and 8 seconds on Hanson, in view of the stage 2 (Lyndoch - Mengler’s Hill, 102 Km), taking place tomorrow, Friday January 12th.
