Abbey Miedema winning the ladies race, beating her own record by 10 minutes and 24 seconds. Picture: www.dusi.co.zaDurban – Reigning Dusi Queen Abbey Miedema shattered her own race record as she romped to an emphatic win over the game Laura Thompson, who finished 33 minutes behind Miedema.

Miedema opted for the safety of the Burma Road portage, but never once tried to protect her lead, as she added a further eleven minutes to her advantage.

“Even the portage over Burma Road felt easier today,” said Miedema. “The win is very special – somehow every Dusi win is special and quite different.”

Meanwhile, Epworth school girl Robyn Kime made a mockery of the junior girls’ race record, as she took an hour and three quarters of the previous best time, and twenty minutes of the old third stage record.

She finished fourth in the overall women’s race, and was pipped to the last place on the podium by Hillary Pitchford.
