Junior Time Trial 

Florence 16.19 km

Race Writeup

Severine Eraud (FRA) won the Junior Individual Time Trial ahead of two Australians, Alexandria Nicholls and Alexandra Manly. 

Nicholls was second to start and fastest across the line in a time of 22 minutes 45.32seconds. She had a long wait in the hot seat before she was joined by team mate Alexandra Manly. Eraud was the last to start. The current European Junior champion was slower at the 8.5km mark, she was sitting in 4th place. In the last 500m it looked like she would be second, but pulled out a couple of seconds on the line, finishing in a time of 22 minutes 42.63 seconds. 


Severine Eraud (FRA) was a very happy winner. "I was an amazing ride for me, it is fantastic, I can't believe I have gold," said Eraud. "It's a great pleasure. I wasn't really expecting this, so I'm very happy. I prefer time trials with climbs, but this was hard because there weren't many places that you could recover.". "Julien told me that I was fourth, so I knew. But I gave it everything at the end and it worked. To find the strength? It's in the head. You have to give it all you've got. You have nothing to lose."

Alexandria Nicholls (AUS) was very happy with her medal, "I came into the race not really expecting a medal at all." said Nicholls. "Medalling is such a bonus. The fact that I'm just missed out on gold does not really worry me. standing here. The fact that I got a silver is absolutely bewildering to me. To come away with a medal is just a dream come true."

Waiting in the hot seat for over one hour, Nicholls could not quite believe she was there so long, "I waspretty surprised that I was not kicked out earlier to be honest. I did not expectto get silver at all. I kept watching the riders finishing and I kept thinking, wow, I get to stay here at bit longer, I did not expect to stay there that long at all," added Nicholls.

Alexandra Manly (AUS) was equally surprised by the result. "It's absolutely amazing just to be here." said Manly. "I'm just so happy and have the chance to share it with Alex, I can't quite believe it."

The Australian Junior ITT champion did not know what to expect, "We had been training on he course and I thought it was going to be fast, it had some nice turns and we had been practicing. When I saw my time and that I was in second, I could not quite believe it. We just wanted each other to do the best we could and we did," added Manly. 

Both Australians will be joined by The Oceania ITT Champion Emily McRedmond for the road race. McRedmond finished 32nd in the ITT..
