US dominates junior women’s time trial at road worlds

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Chloe Dygert and Emma White kept the U.S. soaring at the road cycling world championships.

Dygert captured the gold medal and White won the silver in the junior women’s time trial Monday, the first individual event of the championships. Anna-Leeza Hull of Australia took the bronze on a cool, blustery day on the 15-kilometer course through downtown Richmond.

In the day’s other race, Mads Wurtz Schmidt of Denmark covered two laps of the course in 37 minutes, 10 seconds to win the under-23 men’s time trial. Maximilian Schachmann took silver and German teammate Lennard Kamna earned the bronze.

The championships continue Tuesday with the elite women’s and junior men’s time trials.
