http://www.podiuminsight.com/?p=41204 Chloe Dygert is a very typical 18 year old with her nose ring, a Christian cross tattooed on the back of her neck and three studs in each ear. She is coming off two junior national championships. She is a freshman on the Marian University cycling team, rides for TWENTY16 presented by Sho-Air, and now she is a World Champion. On a 15-kilometer technical course, she easily beat out 36 riders with a time of 20:18:47. Her teammate, Emma White (21:24:00), took silver and Australian Anna-Leeza Hull (21:44:55) finished with bronze.

Women Jr time trial podium (l-r): Emma White (USA) second, Chloe Dygert (USA) first, and Anna-Leeza Hull (Australia), third.

“The conditions were great,” stated Dygert. “I had my headphones in and mentally it helped me, When I first started I knew I needed some velocity to get over Broad Street. I did not pre ride that portion of the race. The turn there was actually sharper than what I was anticipating. I had a lot of speed going into it and I honestly thought I was going to crash. I had to break so much. After that turn I gained my confidence and with my coach Ina Teutenberg in the car behind me telling me what to do and when to do it….it was great. I want to thank Ina, my fiance, Logan Owen, and my coach Joe Holmes. They all got me to where I am today and I could not have done it without them.”

“Ina is the greatest ever. Anything she has to say you take in. She is very knowledgeable and knows everything and anything about cycling. Even if it was just to tell me to go faster it was calming. She was so helpful today.”

Dygert seemed more excited that she was able to share the podium with her teammate, Emma White. “I am really happy that I could go one-two today with my team mate. It’s pretty cool.”

“I felt really good,” commented White. “USA Cycling really prepared us for today. The preparation was more than you can imagine. Support from my coach, Kristen Armstrong, has been been huge. I road the course with Kristen and Carmen Small. We were so excited to have that help.”

White will be transitioning shortly to a full Cyclocross race calendar.

“There is a category that I can compete in at Cyclocross Worlds this year, I absolutely plan on racing a full season. I need to transition pretty quickly because I will be racing Providence.”

USA Women Junior Road team is considered one of the favorites with Skylar Scheider and Ashlyn Woods joining Dygert and White.

“We will have a very strong team. It’s a great course and we are all very excited,” said Dygert.

Start of the Women Junior Road Race will be on Friday, September 25th at 10:00AM – 12:15PM EST.
