Garner retains road title

21 September 2012 / 16:22

Great Britain's Lucy Garner has retained her junior women's road race title with a sprint victory in Limburg in the Netherlands.

Garner was led out perfectly by time trial winner Elinor Barker and beat Norway's Eline Brustad to win a second rainbow jersey.

In doing so, Garner emulated the achievement of Beijing Olympic champion Nicole Cooke, who won back-to-back junior world titles in 2000 and 2001.

Garner's triumph comes just six weeks after she was crowned European champion and the day after she turned 18.
