Katerina Nash has won the 1st World Cup race in Iowa. She attacked halfway the race and never looked back.
It’s a closed race in the first few laps. We see a few attacks from Lechner and Compton but they cannot continue the effort.
Then Nash accelarates and creates a gap. Slowly but steady, se builds out her lead. In the chasing group are: De Boer, Cant, Langvad, Kaptheijns, Keough and Mani.
Keough attacks from this group and makes a final effort to close the gap in the last 2 laps. She comes within 15 seconds but Nash is strong and keeps the pace. She finishes the solo and takes the win. Keough takes 2nd place. Cant wins the sprint for 3th place.
Elite Women’s results:
- Katarina Nash
- Kaitlin Keough
- Sanne Cant
- Sophie De Boer
- Maud Kaptheijns
What a win for @katkanash!
