Elinor Barker claims junior world time trial title  

Great Britain’s Elinor Barker has won the gold medal in the junior  women’s time trial at the world road championships in Limburg,  Netherlands this morning.    The 18-year-old went one better than her silver medal in Copenhagen  


last year, clocking a time of 22 minutes 26 seconds for the undulating 15.6 km course.  Denmark’s Cecilie Ludwig (Denmark) took the silver medal at 35 secs  with Demi De Jong (Netherlands) finishing in third place over a minute  back.    “I’m absolutely ecstatic about today,” said Barker, who was  overwhelmed with emotion as her victory sunk in. “Usually I struggle on  the technical side, things like corners and descents, but I’ve really  improved on that lately and it just went really well.”

After Ludwig’s impressive time had stood for most of the day, Barker  was the first rider to come close to the Dane, up around 13 seconds at  both the first and second time splits. As she crossed the finish line  she proved she’d timed her effort to perfection, although she didn't  realize straight away.     “I hadn’t a clue during the race!” she said. “They were shouting at me  from the car…really beeping on the horn and shouting on the climbs  that ‘this is where you can make up the time, this is your strength,’  that kind of thing.”    “I didn’t have any information on time gaps, I didn’t really want that. I  think I found out when I was sat on the floor just after the finish and  one of the swanny [soigneurs] was telling me I’d won. It didn’t hit me  for a long time.”    Best road bike for commuting । At the present time, the best road bike  under 300​ is very useful vehicles for the people of society. 


Earlier in the year, the Welsh rider won gold in the individual and team pursuits at the European junior track championships and thee medals at  the junior track worlds in Invercargill, New Zealand.
