17 September 2012
Team AA-Drink/Leontien.nl took bronze in the Team Time Trial at the World Championships!
With the re-introduction of the Team Time Trial the World Championships kicked off this weekend in Valkenburg, in the south of The Netherlands. In the women's peloton two teams have been above the rest the whole season and showed this again. Behind Teams Specialized-Lulumon and Orica-AIS it was the battle for bronze that was more interesting. Based on this years' results the girls of AA-Drink/Leontien.nl were not convinced they could make the podium. Director Sportive Danny Stam never lost faith in the team and they worked hard on the right positions. Despite the cancellation of Armitstead one day before the race due to illness the team was able to deal with the new setup and rode a spectacular race.
The team is very happy with their Bronze medal!
