Swinkels was second in the Netherlands’s junior national time trial championships earlier this summer. She has three other podium finishes in 2016 Nations Cup races.

Two Americans rode to top-five finishes in the individual test: Skylar Schneider was fourth, and Hannah Arensman was fifth.

Schneider rode a fast time late in the order, 18:51.80. The American was only bettered by Swinkels and Morzenti, who had started fourth and second to last. Only Labous remained on course, and Schneider seemed to be set for a bronze medal. But Labous closed fast to finish in 18:43.12, stepping up from her fifth-place in Richmond last year.

Time trial races continue Tuesday in Doha with the junior men’s and the elite women’s events.

Also on Monday, the under-23 men raced the time trial, and Germans went one-two in the 28.9km race. Read more >>
