Women's post-race comments

By Nick Warren in Salzburg

Alex Wrubleski (Canada, 23rd)

"It was alright. It was a fast race and definitely a good experience. Positioning was a huge thing, and it's a shame I wasn't up there when [the split on lap five] happened but I'm not sure I could have stayed with it, anyway."

Erinne Willock (Canada, 37th)

"It was a good race. It was hard and it was fast the whole time, but it was a good day.

"I finished in the chase group and there was about 15 up the road, I guess. We wanted to work as a team and take care of each other. Anne Samplonius was up the road [in the early part of the race] and we were hoping one of us could get in a break. I just missed the final split, but there's just nothing you can do.

"The season's over and now we get to go home!"

Jo Kiesanowski (New Zealand, 35th)

"I'm not pleased at all. I was too far back on the fifth lap when the field shredded. I was with some pretty big names so I thought we might get back. "The plan was to sit in, let other teams do their thing and wait for the last couple of laps to get in a move."

Toni Bradshaw (New Zealand, 82nd)

"I didn't have the best day. I got to the fifth lap and didn't have the legs. It's a bit disappointing, but that's bike racing."
