"I'm curious to see how my form is and how the race is going to go," added Garner. "I did the race last year and it was tough, it's a hard one to start off with especially as I'm not training for this race. I'm training for later on in the season so my form isn't going to be at its peak.
"I really just want to go there and help the team as much as possible, I think it's a really good race for two of our girls and I want to help them as much as I can to get the win - and just to test my legs really, just to see what I'm capable of doing at this time of the year and just see how it goes."
Indeed, no matter the outcome on Saturday, this promises to be a big season for Garner and having put in the hard yards over the winter, the prospect of it ending in celebration is a realistic one.
