European Junior Cycling Tour Assen – Stage 1

The annual Jeugdtour, otherwise known as the European Junior Cycling Tour Assen, kicked off yesterday with a 1.7km prologue. Hannah Graveney and Connie Hayes are here representing Liv AWOL, and posted times of 3:02:73 (42) and 3:01:84 (44) respectively.

Today saw the first full stage, a 22-lap race round a 1.8km Criterium course in Assen-Oost (Goudkust). The average speed was very fast with Connie staying with the main group right till the end, and Hannah bravely catching the main group a couple of times after slipping off the back, but ultimately riding alone until 2 laps from the end.

Tomorrow’s Stage 2 will have the girls racing in a classic road race over 62.3km, starting at 8:15am!

Here are a few photos of Hannah and Connie from today’s racing, and one of Directeur Sportif Pat Hayes following the proceedings.
