"It was just an incredible race. I felt strong all the
way and Ida was amazing. I tried to stay in front in my parts
of the races and could made it mostly and then on the last
leg Ida pushed hard for the victory. It was great here in
"In the third exchange Jessica fell but I was not nervous,
I know all can happened in team sprint - we had some bad luck
in other team sprints before. I push hard to get back into
the race, it cost some extra energy but I made it and I am
happy to be on the podium with Jessica and also with our friends
from Canada. We had together with the Canadians a training
camp in summer and pushed each other to a high level."
"I am lucky to be a part of the North American team.
It is really nice to be on the podium together with them,
we have a lot of fun together. The course here was flat and
fast - I like it - and also the people here in Milan are enthusiastic
and cheered for everybody."
"It was a tough race but I felt in good shape. I pushed
hard in front and nobody could attack me on the final straight.
Alexey made a great performance as well. I am happy with the
race, with the audience and the sprint here in Milan."
"We had a tough semi final. I did not believe that we
can end up on the podium today, but Calle came back strong
in the finals and showed a good race. I pushed hard to catch
the Russian's, I came closer on the final straight but it
was not enough to catch Nikolay."
"It was a fantastic race. I was never on the podium in
an italian city before. It is not always easy to prepare a
good course in a city but the team of Milan did a good job
and support us with good conditions."
