Team News – Lucy Garner goes close at Grand Prix Dottignies

A young Team Giant-Shimano women’s team headed to the one-day race looking for a result and they came away with a strong podium place in the finishing sprint after a strong lead-out in the final kilometres.


After coming off the podium, Lucy said: “The team were amazing today, they really were. We communicated throughout the whole race and we had a good plan for the finish. No one could match us in the lead-out at the end and I wish I could have finished off the amazing job that the team did, but I am happy with third here.”

Team Giant-Shimano coach, Ruud Verhagen said: “The team did a great race today and finished it off with a perfect lead-out for Lucy who was only passed in the last 100m for the win. It came down to a photo finish for second but Lucy was awarded third place”.
