After a impressive race from Emilia today she has well earned her Swedish jersey. She was already in the first break that went on the first lap (of 8). On lapÂ 5 me and Susanne could connect to the riders in the front on initiative from me. I raced very offensive on the last 3 laps, Susanne and Emilia was the only ones that could follow. Going out on the last lap I attacked hard with 11km to go, only Susanne could follow and we left a tired Emilia behind with 30 seconds. But with Susanne mostly sitting on my wheel Emilia came back… Another attack with 5km to go and Emilia was off again… Susannes offensiv racing kept “shining with itÂ´s absence” and with her once again sitting on my wheel Emilia was there again.
3km to the finish and Emilia attacked, I took my responsibility but when Susanne didnÂ´t want to take over I had enough… Watching Emilia ride away was painful. But atleast I beat Susanne in the sprint, silver medal is also ok!
Nice to see Emilias ride today and with us two racing so offensive today maybe thereÂ´s a throne change on itÂ´s way?!
