Win the Games road test
The Austrian gives the big surprise by winning the cycling road event and brings out the colors to the Netherlands
Until 2013 she was dedicated to doing duathlons and triathlons, and when in 2016 she won the Spanish Cup for women’s cycling, she recognized that what had cost her the most was going in the peloton. Today, Anna Kiesenhofer is an Olympic road cycling champion, although invisible in the eyes of the Netherlands team. The uncontrolled performance of the orange team, with too many favorites in the same team and taking a long time to work together, has had its climax with the final attack of Annemiek Van Bleuten, who has raised her arms as she crossed the finish line thinking that the gold was his. I did not know that from a minute and a half before it was from an Austrian who got into the day’s break and knew how to manage her forces until the end through the already known and tough Fuji circuit, where Carapaz’s victory was forged yesterday.
