I'm not too sure about that. Guazzini won the EC title, and Van Anrooij, who seems to be the best Dutch TTer in that age category, only finished 8th. Wiebes and Uneken are not bad on prologues, but they wouldn't stand a chance on a 30 km TT.If there had been a U23 women's race, I think this would have been the result.
And of course the reality is that the race would probably have been won by a Dutch rider, who wasn't selected for the Elite Race because, well... they have Van Dijk and Van Vleuten!
Was she? Van Der Breggen also had a quaranteed spot, as the defending champion, so if she'd chosen to ride, the Netherlands would simply have had four riders.Also Van Vleuten wasn't selected over someone else (Markus was though), cause as the Olympic champion her spot was guaranteed.
Yes, and only Jooris, Schmidsberger and Kvasničková are younger than her. But though Niedermayer is the oldest of the medalists, she definitely still has less cycling experience than the other two.She's only now to have her 17th birthday, so the youngest on the podium, right?
