Wiggle Honda’s Peta Mullens takes second place in Noosa Grand Prix

Peta Mullens scored a near-perfect start to her career at Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling with a second place finish in the Subaru Australian Open Critérium, in Noosa, Queensland, on Saturday. Riding in her first ever race in black and orange colours, the 25-year-old Victorian managed to escape the peloton mid-race, along with Katrin Garfoot (QAS) and the two of them managed to hold off the chasing peloton together.

Mullens was just unable to overcome Garfoot in the sprint for the finish, while Australian criterium champion Kimberly Wells (Specialized-Securitor) led the peloton home behind them.

“I felt great out there today and put myself in the right position but unfortunately I was outwitted 200m from the finish,” Mullens conceded after the race. “The Wiggle Honda team all raced like professionals today and controlled the peloton until the finish. I was very proud to be out there representing Wiggle!”

“It’s so fantastic that Wiggle are really supporting us in Australia this summer and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve after this first summer season hit out!” Mullens added.  “We hope to step up at the next race to thank Wiggle and our Aussie fans for their amazing support!”
