2014 UCI Road World Championships: Junior Men & Elite Women’s ITT Photo Gallery

Germany dominated the Men Juniors and Women Elite individual time trials in Ponferrada on Tuesday, with Lennard Kamna and Lisa BRENNAUER proudly pulling on the rainbow jerseys over their German national team colours. Brennauer used her mix of climbing ability and speed to win the women’s title. She stopped the clock in a time of 38:48 for the 29.1km course, beating Anna Solovey (Ukraine) by 18 seconds and Evelyn STEVENS (USA) by 21 seconds. The course and rain for some riders made for a hard race, with 2013 world champion Ellen VAN DIJK (Netherlands) finishing only seventh after fading in the finale of her ride as the rain poured down. ?I can’t believe it. I’m overwhelmed. I’m going to need time to know that it’s reality,? Brennauer said in tears after hugging her coach in celebration when she was declared the winner. I had a really good day and knew I was riding well. I gave it all on the climb, took no risk on the descents and then went full gas to the finish.? ?It’s a great day for Germany. I saw the Juniors race this morning and it?s great weve both won world titles.? Images copyright Ponferrada 2014 & Bart Hazen
