Willing Her Home
To quote Phil Liggett as Lisa Brennauer of Germany headed up the final 100 meters of the course, "The crowd is willing her home." The German's ride was just fast enough to nip in ahead of the Ukrainian, Anna Solovey, and claim gold for the Elite Women's Individual Time Trial. She now will have the honor of wearing the Rainbow Jersey of World Champion every time she lines up to race an individual time trial. She will have that honor until the Championships come to Richmond, Virginia in the United States in 2015. Today is her second Gold Medal of these races, she was part of the Shimano - Lulu Lemon squad that won the Women's Team Time Trial early in the week.
