Women’s Tour Down Under reboot begins for Ruth Edwards

Women's Tour Down Under reboot begins for Ruth Edwards

It was over two years ago that Ruth Edwards (née Winder), in theory, walked away from professional cycling but on Friday she was once again getting ready to launch into the peloton, finding a fitting start to her reboot at the Santos Women’s Tour Down Under.

The last time the rider from the United States was at the race it was in 2020, and then she walked away with overall victory at the then 2.Pro race, as well as a stage win. Returning as a former winner there are plenty of good memories and reminders of her past success, from oversized images of race winners in the hotel hub to the names listed on the steps of the entry way, but plenty has also changed in four years.
