The national championships are in full swing in Europe, which kicked off with the individual time trial in numerous countries.

The Northern Hemisphere countries tend to collectively hold their national championship events in June due to a designed break in the professional European race calendar, in between the Aviva Women’s Tour and the Giro Rosa.

With Rio looming and some national selection spots still up for grabs, the stakes are higher than ever before! The first new national champions have been crowned, and we’ll update this article as results come in.

Here are your new national champions:

Countries are in alphabetical order. We will update as information becomes available. For complete results, visit our race results page.

Time trial

CORVOS_00023715-162

Having won the Ljubljana individual time trial just two weeks ago, with fierce competition from lots of good time triallists, Ann-Sophie Duyck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Etixx) was Belgium’s favourite to renew her title in the individual time trial. She was accompanied by two Lotto-Soudal women on the podium. Last year’s silver medallist Jolien D’Hoore was absent in the championship event, as she focuses on the track for Rio 2016. She will defend her road race title though.

Words from the winner:

“If you only did a recon by car on this course, you’d have had a bad time! It looks very fast, but it’s not. It’s a completely different feel when you’re on the bike. The wind played a major role today and the road was slightly uphill at some points. The victory this year is very special to me. It’s an Olympic year, one month later the European championships are held and then the world championships in Qatar are in October. I have had a great season so far. This title is a new highlight in my career.”

It will be strange not seeing D’Hoore in the black-yellow-and-red jersey of the Belgian road race jersey. The dominant Belgian rider, nicknamed the ‘Belgian bullet’, who is preparing on the track for Rio 2016, sprinted to the line together with Lotte Kopecky and Kaat Hannes, with the latter crossing the line first and D’Hoore having to settle for bronze. After her silver medal in the Belgian time trial championships, Kopecky now has a double silver with her second place in the road race.

Cecilie Ludwig (Team BMS Birn) had just won the youngster classification in the Auensteiner Radsporttage, partly due to her 13th place in the individual time trial stage – only one spot behind power house Trixi Worrack (Canyon-SRAM). With two more top 10 finishes in two UCI1.1 races in May, Ludwig had a great build up to the nationals and was able to take the win in the individual time trial. Amalie Dideriksen (Boels-Dolmans) wasn’t able to do any better than a 14th place, suffering from stomach problems.

Julie Leth (Team Hitec) was out of the Danish championships for the second year in row, so she didn’t have the opportunity to repeat her win of the 2011 Danish road race championships. Another rider who didn’t get to repeat her win in the national road race championships was Dideriksen, as she was beaten on the line by 16-year-old Emma Norsgaard (photo of a Team Rytger teammate) and will have to hand over the red-and-white championship jersey to her.

She has been the national time trial champion for two years now and didn’t really have much competition this year either. Three days after winning stage 5 in the Aviva Women’s Tour, Lotta Lepistö defended her time trial title with ease, completing the 30 kilometer course almost two minutes faster than the silver medallist.

Words from the winner:

“It was hard. There were two laps with 400 meters elevation. I wasn’t feeling very good at the start. I have felt very tired in my recovery. The team decided that I should just start and see how I feel and after 5 kilometres I heard that I was already 20 seconds in front. So I just thought I would keep going and I won by almost two minutes. My average was 43.4 km/h and I was surprised.”

A day for the breakaway; Cervélo-Bigla's Lotta Lepistö wins stage 5 of the 2016 Aviva Women's Tour out of a break of seven.

While most of the cyclists she usually rides with have started the Giro Rosa in Italy, Lepistö had to defend her four time national road title in Finland, which she did with ease. The race finished in a bunch sprint, and with Lepistö’s improved sprinter’s qualities, she didn’t even have to fight really hard to cross the line first.

As Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (Rabo-Liv) pulled out of the national time trial championships, the battle for gold would go between Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Wiggle-Honda) and Elise Delzenne (Lotto Soudal) – or so you’d think. Eventually it was 49-year-old Edwige Pitel that came closest to Cordon-Ragot’s time. But it was the Wiggle-High5 rider who was able to renew her time trial title and will once again wear the French tricolore in the time trial.

Words from the winner:

“I thought in my head ‘play your own game’. I knew I was in shape, but I still suffered. Wearing the blue-white-red jersey is a real pride for me. I love my country, my region and I am proud when I can wear these colours. I’m the only one of the team to be French, and I’ll wear this jersey twice shortly on the roads of the Giro d’Italia.”

On the day that Audrey Cordon-Ragot prolonged her time trial title, her Spanish teammate Anna Sanchis did the same – read Wiggle-High5’s report on both victories.

We knew she was in great form, as her silver medal in the individual time trial championships proved. In the road race, 49-year-old Pitel (pictured on archive footage of the 2015 GP Plouay) arrived solo and will wear the national jersey for a year, taking it over from Ferrand-Prevot, who finished outside the podium in fourth place. She is the reserve for the French team for Rio 2016, which consists of Audrey Cordon-Ragot and Ferrand-Prevot.

Trixi Worrack suffered a terrible crash in the 2016 Trofeo Alfredo Binda, which resulted in having one of her kidneys removed. She made it clear straight away that she was still aiming for Rio 2016 and made her comeback in the Auensteiner Radsporttage this month. She finished twelfth in the individual time trial stage of that race, behind compatriots Lisa Brennauer, Clara Koppenburg, Corinne Lechner and Stephanie Pohl, so it certainly came as a welcome surprise that she took the national title on the individual time trial.

Words from the winner:

“I wasn’t sure really how hard to go at the start of the race. Because of my long break from racing I didn’t know how long I could sustain the power for in a time trial for 26km. I am really happy with the win. I thought before today that if I had a good race I would make the podium. But I have recovered well since my first race back two weeks ago and now I’m looking forward to a proper race program.”

Worrack used up al her energy in the time trial, but her teammates at Canyon-SRAM defended the team honour by finishing first and second. 22-year-old Mieke Kröger is the new German road race champion, with Brennauer in second. In third place not one of the ‘WorldTour’ pro’s like Pohl, Claudia Lichtenberg, Charlotte Becker or the Cervélo-Bigla riders Lisa Klein or Clara Koppenburg, but Jenny Hoffman.

Not part of the United Healthcare team anymore, Hayley Simmonds rode to victory in the British time trial championships in a different kit. Emma Pooley returned from retirement to contest the Rio 2016 time trial, and as she was given the spot for Rio instead of Dani King, all eyes were on Pooley in the national time trial championships. She didn’t manage to reach the podium, finishing fourth, a minute behind Simmonds.

“It’s more special second time around. This year, Emma was coming back and Claire was riding full time this year. Claire is always a big threat. I had a few time checks but it was hard to hear what was going on. Someone I know was on the middle roundabout of the three as I was coming back towards town and I heard him yell “you’re up” but I wasn’t sure if he meant I was up against Emma or up against Claire, I didn’t know what was going on!”

A double Barnes success in the British road race championships. Older sister Hannah Barnes, riding for Canyon-SRAM, won the bunch sprint – proving she is on her way back to where she was before she broke her ankle last year. Her sister Alice Barnes (Drops) sprinted to second place and therefore crowned herself the British U23 road race champion. Lucy Garner (Wiggle-High5) won bronze, while her teammate Dani King just finished outside the podium in fourth place. Lizzie Armitstead (Boels-Dolmans) didn’t defend her road title, and Emma Pooley (Lotto-Soudal) also didn’t take to the start.

“My condition after the crash [in the Aviva Women’s Tour] was unknown. If the nationals had been held even two days earlier, I’m pretty sure that I could not have taken to the start. Even now I can’t lift anything with my arm, and on the bike, I have to make sure that I take good lines and go around the holes. Coming off both races with the jerseys again is a big relief. It might not be the most exciting and important race of the year but still the fact that I was worried about not being able to defend the jerseys shows how important they are.”

Both defending champion Anna van der Breggen (Rabo-Liv) and former world champion Ellen van Dijk (Boels-Dolmans) pulled out of the national time trial championships on the morning of the event, together with Rabo-Liv’s Lucinda Brand and Yara Kastelijn, plus Liv-Plantur riders Kyara Stijns and Rozanne Slik. This made 2014 national time trial champion, Annemiek van Vleuten (Orica-AIS) the top favourite, and she did not disappoint. Van Vleuten beat her competition by an impressive 1:41, which makes us wonder if the presence of Van Dijk and Van der Breggen would have made a difference.

A sursprising winner in the Dutch road race championships. Over the last seven years, either Marianne Vos or one of her teammates won the national road title and this year was no different. But instead of one of the bigger names of the team, it was youngster Anouska Koster who took the win in a two-up sprint with Janneke Ensing (Parkhotel Valkenburg). After a very exciting race, the two made the decisive move and stayed away until the finish. Vos finished it off by winning the peloton sprint.

I would do that, so others could others try later in the race. But my gold medal in the time trial gave me some confidence I might hold out long enough to take the victory myself.”

Niewiadoma

With the palmares she has and the European jersey she’s been wearing since last year, it might surprise you that Kasia Niewiadoma (Rabo-Liv) didn’t have a national title to her name since becoming a professional yet.

Johansson elaborates in the Wiggle-High5 report on Johansson’s and teammate Elisa Longo Borghini’s time trial wins.

CORVOS_00026300-040

The road race jersey of the Swedish national championships has alternatively been on the shoulders of Fahlin and Johansson over the last five years. Johansson took her fifth national road race title this year, which means she’ll go into retirement as reigning time trial and road race champion.

“It’s always a hard fight, but this year’s course wasn’t very hard. It was a really technical one, which probably saved me, because I just realised that – because there were no real hills in it – I just had to make it hard with all the corners and, okay it’s going to be hard for me, but at least it’s going to be hard for everyone else too.”

The exact same result in the Swiss road race championships, with Doris Schweizer taking the double. It means the road race title is back to a true road racer, as mountainbiker Jolanda Neff (Servetto-Footon) had worn the Swiss jersey over the last year – with her third place in the Women’s WorldTour Trofeo Alfredo Binda this year, Neff obviously also performs well on the road. But in the next twelve months, it will be the Cylance rider that can wear the Swiss jersey both in the time trial and on the road.
