Jack Bobridge was an emotional winner of the men’s Under-23 World time trial Championship. The 20-year old Australian, who will ride for Garmin-Slipstream in 2010, revealed afterwards that his tearful reaction owed to there being "quite a bit of pressure" on him before the race.
"There was no discussion about team stuff," said Bobridge. "I had a good chat with him in Adelaide, and I think I caught his eye in the race [in which Bobridge was one of the main aggressors]. I always have good form early season because of the track Worlds. But for him to recognise and notice me as an up-and-coming talent, it’s fantastic, and gives me awesome motivation."
