2016 World Cycling: Elisa Balsamo and Jakob Egholm, the junior champions
On Friday in Doha was booked for road tests of the June Category r. Very early they took to the empty streets of the city girls, for a tour that have covered 74.5 kilometers in less than two hours, with Italian Elisa Balsamo crossing the finish line first.
Throughout the test there, was some selection, except cyclists who dropped from falls or heatstroke, all arrived in the large group? Balsamo thus imposed in a mass sprint ahead of American Skylar Schneider, who took silver, and Norway Susanne Andersen, who was bronze.
Except Maialen Aramendia, which was cut in a fall, all Spanish (Sara Martin, Sandra Alonso and Miriam Gardachal have arrived in the main group. The most outstanding performance signed Sandra Alonso, who got into the sprint and finished in eighth position.
After the turn came the boys, where the Danish beat Jakob Egholm, but not in a mass sprint but arriving alone at the goal. The silver medal would be for the German Niklas Markl and the bronze medal for the Swiss Retto Muller.
The race was one of the funniest tests, which lead these cycling World 2016. There have been many attacks and selections have not been able to control the race, which during its last 50 kilometers has been completely broken. Egholm attacked about 10 kilometers from the finish and was left alone to win gold, while the other two medals are the 16 played in sprint cyclists.
In this final group could not sneak any Spanish. The two survivors, as Inigo Elosegi had to leave, were Pol Jaime Hernandez Vallejo and Alex Fernandez, who entered the main pack, nearly two minutes of the first men on goal.http://www.sportseducationexpo.com/2016-world-cycling-elisa-balsamo.htmlCycle Sport
