Pacific Cycling Centre’s Annie Ewart showed her future potential at the UCI Road World Championships in Copenhagen last week. A 7th place in the Junior Time Trial was followed by a solid performance in the Road Race.

Thirty-nine riders competed in the 13.9km time trial in downtown Copenhagen. Starting 12th, Ewart was third with five riders to go, but strong competition from Australia, Great Britain and Germany pushed her off a podium position into 7th place. This was a vast improvement over 2010 when she finished 20th, and it was the best Canadian performance in the TT for 13 years.

The 70km Junior Road Race was held under dry, mild conditions, but this didn’t stop two crashes in the peloton early on in the race. Undeterred, Ewart was in the top 20 for most of the race until a crash ahead of her caused her to come off her bike. Battling back to the finish line, she finished 50th, and although the result may have been disappointing, she felt she had a strong race until the final sprint.

Fellow PCC athlete Erinne Willock competed in the Elite Women’s Road Race and finished 33rd.
