“It has been my dream to stand on the top step in Europe and hear my National Anthem get played,” said Lex after her podium win last year. “Today we had a plan to stay together at the front and the girls did an awesome job. Our sports director really helped me keep it all together in the latter stages on the radio and I got into the right place before the climb and then held back until I knew I could sprint to the line. Coming across the line solo was fantastic!”
