WHAT HAPPENED ?

The young generation showed what’s what in Spain with the reigning Junior UCI World Champion Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) and Under-23 UCI World Champion Marc Hirschi (Team Sunweb) claiming first and third respectively. Evenepoel soloed to the first UCI WorldTour one-day win of his career after attacking on the final climb, while 20-year-old Hirschi signed his best UCI WorldTour result of his career in the sprint for the remaining podium places. Sandwiched between 19-year-old Evenepoel and 20-year-old Hirschi on the podium was reigning Olympic Champion Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team), at 34 years old some 15 years older than his podium companions.

WHAT HAPPENED ?

Dutch Champion Lorena Wiebes (Parkhotel Valkenburg) again demonstrated her sprinting qualities, adding her first UCI Women’s WorldTour one-day victory to a string of 2019 successes, not least all three stages of the Tour of Chongming Island in May. In London on Saturday, the 20-year-old’s teammates set her up for the final sprint, and she took the lead 200 metres from the finish line. Fellow Dutchwoman Kirsten Wild (WNT Rotor Pro Cycling Team) managed to edge past her at the finish, but was then relegated for deviating from her line, leaving Wiebes to celebrate victory. Second and third places went to Italian Elisa Balsamo (Valcar Cylance Cycling), and 2017 winner American Coryn Rivera, (Team Sunweb). Other race favourites were caught up in a mass crash just metres from the finish.

WHAT HAPPENED ?

After surviving the wet and hectic downhill qualifying, Great Britain’s Laurie Greenland showed his opponents a clean pair of heels in the final, completing the Val di Sole downhill course nearly 3 seconds faster than UCI World Cup leader Loïc Bruni, who was followed by fellow Frenchmen Loris Vergier and Amaury Pierron. French victory in the Elite Women’s downhill with Marine Cabirou signing her first-ever World Cup victory in front of Australian Tracey Hannah.

Dutchman Mathieu van der Poel dominated cross-country racing in Val di Sole with victory in the XCC (short track) and then in the main XCO race, where he put in an impressive attack on the final lap to distance Swiss riders Mathias Flückiger (18 seconds back) and Nino Schurter. In the Women Elite race, Pauline Ferrand Prévot (France) signed an incredible victory after a last-lap battle with Switzerland’s Jolanda Neff (winner of the XCC) which saw the lead change several times. Ferrand Prévot finally sprinted to victory by one second. Third-placed Jenny Rissveds (Sweden) crossed the line a minute later.
