Olympic champion Lisa Brennauer won the bronze medal in the individual time trial at the European road cycling championships in Trento.
After 22.4 kilometers, the Allgäu was 1:02 minutes behind the winner Marlen Reusser from Switzerland. Second place went to Dutch rider Ellen van Dijk, 19 seconds behind. Lisa Klein, who together with Brennauer won gold in a four-man at the summer games on the track, followed 1:22 minutes back in fourth place.
Brennauer was caught by the Reusser who started before her shortly before the end, but it was enough to get bronze. “Lisa knew that Reusser was coming from behind, we had informed her over the radio. After she had pulled up, it was an incentive for Lisa to stay tuned and go full throttle,” said national coach André Korff.
Previously, Hannah Ludwig had taken second place among the U23 women. Gold went to the superior Italian Vittoria Guazzini, who was 39 seconds faster. Her teammate Elena Pirrone finished in third place 0:46 minutes back.
The German team has already collected four medals in the first two days. On Wednesday there was silver for the mixed team relay and for junior Antonia Niedermaier. The title fights end on Sunday with the men’s street race.
