Former Australian champion Ruth Corset has dominated the Velo Battle On The Border, race two of the women’s national road cycling series.
Corset, who turns 35 on Wednesday, had dropped out of road racing for several months.
She won the 2010 Australian road race title and rode later that year at the world championships in Geelong.
On Monday, Corset wrapped up the four-stage Battle On The Border when she won the final-stage criterium on the Gold Coast.
It was her first national road series racing since 2009.
Corset won two stages in the four-stage event.
Lisa Jacobs finished fourth overall to retain her series lead.
Corset is unsure whether she will continue in the national series as she is preparing for a June long-course triathlon.
“My next goal is the Cairns half-ironman in June so I’m looking forward to that, (but) we will just see what happens,” said Corset, who is from Townsville.
“(The series) is very well organised and it’s great to see that many girls racing.
“I think it’s just going to go up from here.”
