Chantal Blaak just got women’s World Championship road race victory

 

Chantal Blaak wins women’s World Championships Road race as Gardfoot and Dideriksen took silver and bronze respectively.

 

Blaak soloed to today’s race victory in the elite women’s World Championships road race that is currently taking place in Bergen. First place comes right after Blaak’s Dutch team had an outstanding numerical advantage count in the victory.

 

Unfortunately, today’s race saw no British winner despite the efforts made. Tomorrow, is men’s turn to perform with Peter Sagan being the main part of the group of cyclists that are closest to victory, trying to get three rainbow jerseys in a row.

 


During her post-race interview, Blaak admitted that she went hard on Salmon Hill because she knew a very strong group would definitely come across.

 

“It was so hard with three Dutch riders at the end. Britain really bonded as a team this week. We can be really proud, we really raced it today.”

 

On the other side, Lizzie Deignan admitted to be very happy for Blaak and not disappointed at all since her efforts made her part of every move trying hard to lead the race. “My team kept me going. If they weren’t there I might have pulled out,”- she said.
