Junior Road Race 

Florence 82.85 km

Race Writeup

Amalie Dideriksen (DEN) won the Junior women's road race, sprinting for Gold ahead of Anastasia Iakovenko, Ukrainian and Russian Olena Demydova . Conditions were considerably cooler than they had been earlier in the week. 81 starters from 31 countries took to the start line. 

The first time up the climb, the peloton were all together and setting a steady pace. As the parcours got steeper, two riders attacked. German, Anna Knauer and Ukrainian, Olena Demydova attacked towards the top of the long 4.5km climb then went again on the short steep 500m 16% climb. A leading group formed on the descent, Russian, Anastasia Iakovenko, Ukrainian, Demydova and Knauer At the end of first lap they had a lead of 23 seconds to two chasers, Jessenia Meneses Gonzalez (COL) and Amalie Dideriksen (DEN), followed by the bunch at 1 minute 29 seconds. Over the climb for the second time, the three leaders were still away, with two chasers at 26 seconds with the bunch at 2 minutes. 

A reaction from the peloton meant the gap started to come down just a little. At the head of the peloton a new chase formed with three riders, Lisa Klein (GER), Angela Maffeis (ITA) and Jeanne Korevaar (NED)but it did not last long. At the start of lap 3, the three leaders had 28 seconds to the two chasers and the intact peloton were, 2 minutes 11 seconds back. 

At the first long climb for the third time, a lead of four leaders had formed. Anastasia Iakovenko (RUS), Jessenia Meneses Gonzalez (COL) and Amalie Dideriksen (DEN) and Olena Demydova (URK). The German, Knaur, who initiated the break, struggled to stay with them on the climb, but managed to catch them on the descent. The peloton had split into a group of 21 chasers 2 minutes 32 behind the leaders. At the steep 500 m climb, the leading group was back to four again, as the German, fell back again but her descending skills enabled her to stay with the group. The gap to the main chase group was down to 2 minutes 1 second. 

At the end of the third lap the chase was unorganised and the gap was 2 minutes 12 seconds. Again on the climb the German was dropped and the four leaders' created a bigger gap over the top. Knaur was 48 seconds behind. The peloton had closed the gap a little with 1 minute 55 seconds the gap over the top of the main climb. Over the climb for the fourth time, the four leaders, worked well together. 

The chase was on from behind, led by the newly crowned French TT Junior World Champion Severine Eraud. Last lap and the gap was 1 minute 10 to the chase group, led by the Italians. At the climb for the final time the gap to the chase was 1 minute 14 seconds. Gonzalez had a mechanical just before the steepest part of the final climb and the three leaders took advantage. In the chase group, the Italian Llaria Bonomi tried to chase the leaders but it was all too late. 

The three leaders created a 37 second gap on the Columbian. They rode strongly on the descent to ensure that they were all in with a medal chance. As the leaders entered the streets of Florence, with 1km to go, the cat and mouse game started. The Columbian was chasing hardand almost caught the leaders. The Russian realised the danger and started her sprint early. With 100m to go the Dane jumped and crossed the line to win ahead of Anastasia Iakovenko (RUS), and Demydova (URK).

Comments:

Amalie Dideriksen (DEN) was a very happy winner, always try towin when I race and today I did," said Dideriksen. Reflecting on the sprint, "My coach told me to wait, 175, 150, 130 then go. I knew from my track racing that I could sprint so I was quite confident," added Dideriksen.
