UCI WOMEN’S WORLD ROAD CHAM­PI­ONSHIPS, INNS­BRUCK

Bicycling (South Africa) - - Paradise Groad -

Dutch rider Anna van der Breggen could rightly claim to be the best women’s cy­clist in the world af­ter win­ning the Rain­bow Jer­sey, with a bril­liant solo win that saw her com­plete the last 39km of the 156km route alone. Van der Breggen is cur­rently the Olympic and Euro­pean cham­pion, and also won the sil­ver in the women’s time trial. Van der Breggen bridged the gap to the break­away and then rode away to beat Aus­tralia’s Amanda Spratt by 3 min­utes 42 sec­onds, and av­er­aged 37.18km/h for the tough course.
