As they started the final two laps, Alessio Martinelli (Italy) broke clear to chase solo, with four forming a final group that would fight for bronze - Sheffield, Enzo Leijnse (Netherlands), Garofoli and Vegard Stokke (Norway).  As Simmons came in 56 seconds clear of Martinelli, Sheffield won the sprint for bronze ahead of Leijnse.






Raphael Parisella


Lukas Carreau finished in the same group with Parisella, in 61st place.  Riley Pickrell and Jacob Rubuliak were listed as DNF, after organizers closed the final 500 metres of the circuit, since they were over the time limit.

"It was my first experience in Europe," said Parisella, "and it was pretty hard - technically and in positioning, because it was super aggressive.  I was not well placed at the bottom of the big climb 100 kilometres from the finish (Kidstones Bank), so I was caught behind the split there.  Lukas and I rode really hard for the rest of the race, did some attacks to move up, but when we reached the circuit it was just about surviving.  In the final sprint up the little climb I was able to pass some guys.  I think I can take a lot of experience from this race; it's a steep learning curve, but you have to pass through it.  In Quebec, the finish is pretty aggressive for the last ten K, but here it was like that for 150 K, so it's hard to cope with that mentally and not lose positions."
