While the UCI Congress was going on, and on, and ON, the junior women were racing their Road cycling World Championships. In some ways it was the most interesting course – no run-in, just 5 laps of the hilly finishing course. And even though we couldn’t watch it live, Monique Hanley’s tweets and Giulia de Maio‘s livetext updates on TuttoBici made the race sing.
I always love the Junior Track World Championships, because it’s not only the chance to spot stars of the future, but it’s also great to watch the young riders learning and developing – and their huge emotion when they win, and realise that all that hard work over the years has paid off. It’s lovely!
This year’s Track World Champs were shown live, so if you missed them, here are the videos – highlights shows and the full sessions – and I’ve put in the timings for the full races, if you want to find your favourites.
