Americans go one-two in junior women’s worlds TT

The home team got off to a blazing start in worlds week on Monday in Richmond, Virginia as junior American women went one-two in the individual time trial. Chloe Dygert won the 15-kilometer race, 1:06 ahead of her compatriot Emma White. Australian Anna-leeza Hull rounded out the podium, 1:26 behind the winner.

“I enjoyed it so much,” Dygert, of Brownsburg, Indiana, said. “I’m a power climber, and [the course] was made for me. It’s really exciting, this is my first worlds.”

“It’s amazing, and it feels even better that my teammate was first,” said White. “I’ve been working really hard this season. I was fifth last year so I was hoping to move up, but of course it’s not real until it actually happens. I’m really happy with it. It’s incredible, such an honor, and a really cool way to finish my junior career.”

Winds kicked up throughout the morning, buffeting riders as they rode across exposed overpasses through Richmond’s downtown.

“On the bridge it was a full-on headwind, just powering through it. It was difficult,” White said. “You really had to keep that mental strength up to continue the rest of the ride.”

“I tried not to think about it,” Dygert said of the windy conditions. “I had a headphone in for Ina [Teutenberg] and an earplug so I wouldn’t hear it. That helped me block it out. I knew it was there but I was able to ignore it.”

White, the reigning U.S. junior cyclocross champion, will step back into a ‘cross schedule as soon as next weekend, and is eyeing a good performance at the world championships in Luxembourg. “I absolutely plan on racing the season, transitioning pretty quick, heading to the Providence UCI race,” she said.

Dygert is the U.S. junior national champion in both the time trial and the road race. White finished second in this year’s national championship TT.
