Malseed back in Euro competition
AFTER a two month competition hiatus Portland international cycling export Shannon Malseed has returned to racing in Europe, taking on the Prudential RideLondon Classique last Saturday.
Malseed, racing in her second year with USA-based Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank, lined up alongside five teammates for the 68-kilometre one-day road race through the city streets of London.
24-year-old Malseed finished in 74th place overall, with Netherlands’ cyclist Lorena Wiebes taking out a win ahead of Italian Elisa Balsamo.
Canadian Alison Jackson was the highest finishing member of Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank in 19th spot, leading Malseed, Brodie Chapman and Slik Rozanne.
