Sisters Emily and Fay Wiggins are following in the footsteps of older brother Craig, after each taking home a State junior criterium title last weekend.

The under-17 race had such big numbers that the boys and girls races were separated, with the girls starting 30 seconds behind the boys.

Emily Wiggins wasted no time and was pursued by Isabelle Commons as the pair passed the boys.

The pace picked up but by this time Emily Wiggins and Commons had at least a 20-second gap over the rest of the field as they swapped turns at the front.

Zara Williamson started pegging back the gap on Emily Wiggins and Commons, catching them with two laps to go.

Emily Wiggins and Commons went up another gear as they dropped Zara Williamson and from there Emily Wiggins out-sprinted Commons to take out the win in the under-17 race.

In the under-13 race Fay Wiggins was locked in a battle with Fraser McRobbie and Chase Haines.

McRobbie sprinted away to claim the under-13 boys’ title ahead of Haines while Fay Wiggins took out the under-13 girls’ title and finished third overall.
