“Just like London [Six Day], it was a really strong field. It’s really encouraging to get some good results, but there were some big names missing, like the British team, so we still have a lot of work to do leading into the world championships,” said Duehring.
Beveridge agreed with her teammate, saying, “We definitely had some ups and downs over the days, but it was good to take some wins and we’re looking forward to Copenhagen next week and the world championships in a month.”
