Despite an outstanding 104km solo ride to victory in the Road World Championships, following her lengthy press obligations, Annemiek Van Vleuten even had the legs to ride back to the Dutch federation hotel, resplendent in rainbows, with her new gold medal around her neck. 

While Van Vleuten was congratulated by her Dutch federation staff and teammates, Cyclingnews spent five minutes with the race-winning bike, the Scott Foil RC – an aero road bike designed for long breakaway days. It's as if she knew. 

While the weather remained largely dry, the day's hard-fought victory was apparent, with the tyres and chainrings still wearing the coating of grit and grime from Yorkshire's grippy roads. 

The bike is the same Scott Foil RC Van Vleuten has ridden throughout her 2019 season for the Mitchelton-Scott women's team, and, as is commonplace throughout the Women's World Tour team, is complete with Shimano Dura-Ace wheels and Di2 groupset, complete with Shimano Dura-Ace power meter.
