World Road Championships – Quinn Simmons Solo in the Junior Men Road Race


Quinn Simmons

Our last question to seventh placed World Junior Road Race Championship rider, Scotsman Alfie George?

But what age do you think newly crowned World Junior Road Race Champion, Quinn Simmons REALLY is?’

Seriously though, a cracking ride from the 18 year-old bearded American, barn door of a strong man who goes to World Tour team Trek Segafredo for 2020.

US Team manager, ex-pro, Roy Knickmann had this to say;

“The US junior team rode like a Pro Tour team dictating even moment of the 148km road race. 

“Selfless riding by every member of the team resulted in a US World Champion as well as a bronze medal. 

“Huge day for the guys.”

Can’t argue with that.

But also an excellent performance from Scotland’s Alfie George riding for GB to take seventh in a race of attrition race on a miserable day on tough Yorkshire roads.

It was a nice morning up in picturesque Richmond for the start with 140 plus riders lining up in the old town square.
