“Second for us from Tiff today is huge,” he said. “This is a really positive sign that we’re going in the right direction. I’m absolutely thrilled for her. This result means almost much as any win we’ve gotten all season. She’s been closing in on this all year. Most people don’t realize that she nearly got on the podium at the Sweden World Cup last weekend. All they know is she ran seven out of seven, and they don’t realize that she did a really special ride. Today is her reward for working hard all year.”
“This certainly is big,” admitted Cromwell. “It’s on par with my Giro win. I’ve been trying to get a World Cup win for awhile, and Plouay has been one I’ve hoped for. A top five here would have been amazing. Standing on the podium is really special. I’m so happy to do this for the girls and be in a position to finish off the work they did.”"
