Elinor Barker (c): Struck gold in Holland

Great Britain's Elinor Barker has won gold in the junior women's time-trial at the UCI Road World Championships in Holland.

Denmark's Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig was second, with Holland's Demi de Jong third.Barker, who finished with silver in 2011, said on www.cyclingweekly.co.uk: "I'm just so glad it's over and it's gone well.

"It was just so hard. I didn't feel great at the start but after the first couple of km I just got into a rhythm and just stuck with it.

"It's huge, this is all I've wanted since this day last year.

"It's all I've thought about. But it's not even sunk in yet."
