Jolien D'HOORE (BEL) - bronze

On taking the bronze medal:

"I feel really happy and relieved with a bronze medal, I just wanted to race.

"I come from the road, I've done a lot of races on the road, so I just wanted to see how my legs would react in the race.

"It came down to a bunch sprint, and I chose my gear a bit too small for the bunch sprint. I was just hanging on in the sprint for bronze."

On her performance in the race:

"Coming away with a medal is always nice but this wasn't the main objective. It's not an Olympic event, it's just good for the confidence and we can build on this for the madison."
