“Demacon has had a really great year so far and our objective will be the same as for every other race which is for one of us to take the win,” Oberholzer told In the Bunch.
“We will have to get together before the time and then decide who is feeling good and who is not.
“It has been a while since we have all been together and raced. We will just have to keep doing what we have done for the first part of the year and that is make the race hard while riding good and positively.
“As a team, communication and trust between each other will also be important.”
With the race this year stretched out into one long distance as opposed to the four stages of previous years, Oberholzer said they would prepare for the event just like any other.
“The change from four stages to one race I think suits me better. I am better on the longer distances and I am not too fond of the stop-start [format], although the social aspect of that would be nice.
“From a racing perspective I prefer to keep going. It is the first year the race will be run that way and it will be exciting to see how it plays out.”
She was however unsure of her form heading into the race. “I am currently in a building phase ahead of the rest of the year.
“I am not 100 per cent sure what the form is looking like, but I am excited to be taking part.
“It will be good to go to a part of the country where the weather will hopefully be a bit warmer – back home in Clarence it is extremely cold.
“I am also very excited to see all the girls again.”
