Double World TT champ – Annemiek Van Vleuten

2018 World Time trial Champion, Annemiek van Vleuten: “I know how nice it is to ride a bike with the beautiful Rainbow Jersey, so I didn’t have to feel under pressure to perform today, I just wanted to win like last year. It was a hard Time Trial because we also had to push on the descents. I was aware that I gained some time in the first part but I still rode fast afterwards. Our result with 1-2-3 for the Netherlands comes from the training camps we’ve done together for several years. Now we’re part of trade teams but the support we’ve got from our national federation has paid off today.”
