“I can’t describe the feeling after winning today, I am so happy,” said Elke. “It was a long and hard day and I was in the break after kilometre six with a group, before Vera attacked and I joined her. We worked very well together and managed to stay away.

“In the final she attacked a couple of times but she couldn’t drop me. I took the final corner first and gave it all to the finish line and she was never able to overtake me.

“At the beginning of the season at the team presentation I said it was my goal to win an international race, to have accomplished that today is great. The whole season I have felt strong and since I have joined the team I have become a better rider and made a big jump in my performance. I will definitely go to sleep with a smile on my face tonight.””
