Kirchmann led the Canadian charge, finishing 12th in a hard-fought 152.8km Elite women’s road race, an eight-lap race won by Chantal Blaak (NED) on the final lap of the competition.
Garfoot (AUS) claimed the silver, and Amalie Dideriksen (DEN), the defending champion, took home the bronze medal in the bunch sprint to the line.
All Canadians finished the tough course with the brutal Salmon Hill climb and much longer distance than usual for the Elite women.
Canuel finished 32nd, Alison Jackson was 57th, Lex Albrecht finished 67th, Sara Bergen was 68th, and Kirsti Lay placed 73rd despite being caught up in a crash and going down on the fifth lap.
