World Championships: Junior Women's ITT
 

... Germany! After losing to the Italians in last year's opening race of the World Road Championships, the Germans took revenge twelve months later, with 18-year-old Bianca Knöpfle of Freiburg, an excellent MTB specialist too, dominating the Junior Women's Time Trial, as she set a winning time of 22 minutes, 17 seconds and eight hundredths to cover the 15.4-km route.

The all-European podium was completed by the two Dutch contenders: Loes Markerink came in six and a half seconds behind the winner, and bronze medalist Iris Slappendel lost more than 30" to the brand new World Champion.

Eastern Europe filled the remaining Top 5 places, while Stephanie Williams of Australia was the best-placed non-European (and English speaker). American Larssyn Staley took ninth, right ahead of Chiara Nadalutti (The Italians couldn't repeat last year's stellar performance. And the disppointed girl told Italian press that "This route was very hard and the first part, with that climb, didn't suit my skills. I went better in the second half anyway") while Karen Amundsen was 24th.

As for Canada, the two "local" riders, Audrey Lemieux and Emilie Roy, took 16th and 18th respectively.
