I bet Magnus Backstedt is on top of the world with his daughter winning the rainbow jersey…we heard his emotions live on GCN when she crossed the line in front of Kaia Schmid (USA) who was one of the revelations at the Ras na mBann a few weeks ago…The GB team controlled the race when Zoe and Kaia managed to get away..disturbing the chase to perfection…the dutch girls tried but to no avail…the 2 took over a minute with 15km to go and the chasers got only to sprint for the bronze, this won by German girl Linda Riedman. The Irish girls had to let go early, Aoife O’ Brien managed to stay in the race, while Erin was probably taken out of the race at some point (no info yet) and not to be ashamed off, with the cream of the World top Juniors in the race …a brutal 4 climbs each lap scattered the riders big time….they had their first taste of world level road racing and soaked up the experience…well done Erin and Aoife

All ready to go!! (Photo courtesy of Toby Watson including some inlet’s of the girls in the featured collage)
