report by Junior Road Worlds

August 6, 2010 (Offida, Italy) – Canna Solovei (Ukraine) won the junior women’s 15.1km ITT followed by Pauline Ferrand Prevot (France) in second and Amy Cure (Australia) in 3rd. Annie Ewart lead Canada in 20th followed by Julia Garnet in 23rd.

Ukrania’s Solovei is the Junior World time trial Champion
The female time trials officially kicked off the athletic program at the World Championships in Offida. Over a distance of 15.1km of undulating valleys from Acquaviva Piceno to Offida, and against a strong wind, the Ukrainian athlete Canna Solovei, already world champion in this discipline in Moscow 2009 (and European champion against the clock both this year and last year). The seventeen year old is therefore not a surprise winner, and she finished the trial in 21 minutes and 30 seconds.

“It was a very demanding trial, with very technical short descents and slight uphill sections where it was difficult to find the right rhythm. My short term goal is the Track World Championship in Montichiari, while in the long term I would like to win a
medal at the 2012 London Olympics.”

France’s Pauline Ferrand Prevot took second place, with a gap of 5 seconds. “I have a special ‘relationship’ with the podium: I finished second is the world last year (on the road and time trial) and at the European championships this year in Ankara. I
hope to redeem myself on Sunday and win the rainbow jersey.”

The bronze medal went to Australia’s Amy Cure, at a distance of 12 seconds. “I found the course very demanding – she said – and perhaps not suited to my skills. I’m very happy with third place. ” Among the Italians the best was Susanna Zorzi in fifth place (with a gap of 14 seconds). More disappointing was Soraya Paladin in nineteenth place.
