Comments

Kristy Scrymgeour (Owner Specialized-lululemon) “It was a very exciting win today, it was so nerve racking in the car, it was such a close race between us [Specialized-lululemon] and Orica AIS. They really put it to us in the first third of the race. We had to bring it home."

On how important the team time trial at the World Championships is for the team and its sponsors, “It is an exciting race and a great initiative to have this for trade teams to be able to represent their sponsors on a world stage. It is exciting too and a really great race that the girls can build up to. They have to be good and be selected for it amongst the rest of the team. There have been some great team time trails this year where they can practice so it is good fun.”

Marianne Vos (Rabo Women) is fresh from her Olympic victory and very happy to be racing in Sweden and the team’s third place and retaining the overall World Cup leaders jersey, “ Well, we can be pretty happy with that result I think. Third place is good, Specialized-lululemon and Orica GreenEDGE are strong teams. We tried to get as close as possible, for us the third place is the best we could do,” said Vos.

On the standings in the World Cup, “ I am very happy for the world cup. I had time after the Olympics but no recovery time, just celebration time.”

Liesbet de Vocht (RaboWomen) was enjoying being part of the Rabobank team after Marianne's victory in London, "Marianne just pushes everyone to get better and go faster. We have Annemiek [van Vleuten] and Pauline [Ferrand Prevot] missing today so I am looking forward to having them back in the team for the World Championships in September," said de Vocht.
