WK Vrouwen: Vos, Van Dijk, Van der Breggen, Gunnewijk, Brand, Van Vleuten, Pieters, Wild— Sander Slager (@Sander_Slager)
The Dutch national team for the 2013 World Championships Road Race…. damn, that’s super-strong!
“They fought it out in a sprint at the end with Amy finishing third, a fantastic result. Getting third at this level shows that she has made another step this season and it was great to see how the team rode together to get the most out of the day.”
“It was a really hard race, with a lot of attacks,” said a tired Amy Pieters after the finish. “We were present all day at the front, and I was always able to follow the big attacks.
“I have to thank my team mates, it’s so motivating to see them all up the front all the time. I did a good sprint but Vos and Johansson were just stronger, so third is fantastic in such a great race.”"
