Victory for Ashleigh in Norway Cup

Ashleigh Moolman Pasio (Hitec Products) claimed victory in the Norgescup #1 in Skien, Norway, on Sunday. Ashleigh’s first trip to Norway turned out extremely successful as she dons the leader jersey after the first race of the series.

The riders started the attacks early in the race, and Ashleigh’s team Hitec Products were prominent throughout, with Ashleigh frequently in the breaks along the route that comprised five laps of 22km.

In the final two laps, five riders were in the break, three of them from the Hitec Products team, including Ashleigh. With a final long hill climb to the finish, Ashleigh had made a break, with only Vita Heine on her wheel.

Ashleigh was successful in the sprint to the finish line, claiming victory in her first cup race in Norway.
