Marianne VOS (NED) - silver

On the dramatic finish to the race:

 "There were a lot of things happening in the final stages. It looked like it was going to be a sprint and in the final kilometres the race got very fast. I wasn't really prepared for the sprint though."

On the victory by Italy's Marta BASTIANELLI:

"Italy is a very strong team as well - it's not as if we were the only strong group in the race. They did really well. We could have done a few things differently but Italy deserved the win.
