Clara Lundmark defends Swedish U23 title


Last week was all about the national championships. And once again TALENT Cycling took home one of the titles to be awarded. Clara Lundmark successfully defended her U23 title at the Swedish Road Championship.

Unfortunately, Nathalie Eklund didn’t get the chance to defend her road title. A leading group stayed ahead and was allowed to sprint for the victory and Carin Winell can call herself the successor of Nathalie Eklund. Her win last year will always remain a highlight in the history of TALENT Cycling and we are delighted that she has been able to regularly display her stunning Biemme champion jersey.

In the sprint for fifth place, the U23 title was also at stake. Clara Lundmark sprinted behind Emilia Fahlin to sixth, which was enough to take the U23 title. Cheers!

In the Czech Republic, Melissa van Neck represented the colours of Grant Thornton-Krush Bikes-Tunap Sports. After an eleventh place in the time trial, she came very close to a podium place in the road race. Van Neck finished fourth.

The VAM-Berg was the setting for the Dutch National Championships on the road, in which  Quinty Ton rode to 25th place. A month ago she had surgery on her collarbone after a serious fall, but she found her good legs again on the very difficult course.

A great experience for Petra Welmers at the Dutch National Time Trial Championship. The TALENT Cycling rider completed the 29.6 km time trial in a time of 46m30s. Good for a 40th place and many insights to be able to continue with. Norah Minck took sixth place in the District Championship North, which also took place on the VAM-Berg. 

On the course of OWC Oldenzaal it was Willemijn Prins who took the victory in the bunch sprint on behalf of Talent Cycling after a successful lead-out. Carola van de Wetering finished third in this training match. Lisa van Belle was the fastest in Honselersdijk, while Freja Ann Smith took the win in Deventer.
