Road world championships
Scenes from the UCI Women’s Elite Road Race World Championship. Alena Amialiusik was our best placed rider, finishing in 18th place.
“I am not very happy with the result, I started the main climb in very bad position due to crashes before, where I had to stop several times. I could get to the front at the end of the climb but the main break had already gone. I’m sad I couldn’t have the opportunity to at least try to stay with the best ones.”
“It was a hard race from the beginning, with a lot of crashes, the peloton was nervous and it took a lot of energy from my body. At one point I felt empty, but I think it was a mental tiredness. One positive thing for me with is that after two years of missing Worlds because of my injuries today, finally, I could do a world championship so I know now what I have to work for the future and I am looking forward to it.” Alena Amialiusik.
