STORY SCRIPT:

Denmark’s women’s and Kazakhstan’s men won their respective Cycling Combined Team Event at Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.

In this competition, both riders in the team compete in three road cycling types, Road Racer RR, Criterium, Team Time Trial (TTT) and two Mountain Bike Race types: Cross- Country Eliminator (XCE) and Cross Country Short Circuit (XCC)

Over these disciplines the Danish women’s team of Sofia Pederson and Mia Saabye amassed 376 points, their strongest performances being in both Cross Country stages and the Time Trial. Their Criterium, the final event, was poor but that didn’t prevent them from winning gold.

Silver medallists from Austria, Laura Stigger and Hannah Streicher finished on 355 points. Bronze went to Hungary’s Virag Buzsaki and Blanka Vas.

Kazakhstan’s men’s cycling team of Gleb Brussenskiy and Yavgeniy Fedorov easily won the Men’s Combined Team Event. They were the strongest in the Team Time, Trial, the Road Race, and the Criterium, building up a total of 418 points. Their nearest rivals from Luxembourg were only able to muster 276 points. The bronze went to Great Britain.
