Emilia Fahlin “as always, super excited for the Swedish round of the WWT!”

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling’s Emilia Fahlin will once again lead the black and orange team as it takes on the next two UCI Women’s WorldTour races in her native Sweden. The Postnord Vårgårda Team Time Trial and Road Race will unusually be run on Saturday and Monday, due to the proximity of the European Championships, and provide the 29-year-old with her first opportunity to show her blue and yellow champion’s jersey on her home roads.

“I’m, as always, super excited for the Swedish round of the WWT!” Fahlin, who took an emotional victory in the Road Race, in 2016, said. “It’s definitely one of my absolute favourite weekends in all the year, not just because it’s extremely cool to race on home soil with lots of support, also the course is one of my favourites too!”

Saturday’s Team Time Trial will be a 42.5km will be based on a rolling out-and-back route between Vårgårda and Heerljunga, with a small finishing loop. The Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling team will include newly-crowned European Champions Kirsten Wild, who was part of the team that won the event in 2009 and 2010, and Lisa Brennauer, who won in 2013 and 2014, as well as being a Team Time Trial World Champion for three years running, between 2013 and 2015.

“The TTT is always a good test,” Fahlin said. “Since we don’t have much practice yet this year in this event it will be good to do a proper long TTT run and see how we go and take some good feedback from this for upcoming ones! And it’s indeed a good warm up and hit out for Monday’s road race, which has basically a bit of everything in it with gravel sections, technical parts in town and a small climb in the circuit.”

The Team Time Trial squad will also include French Champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot, who came close to a medal in Wednesday’s European Championship Time Trial, and Australian Nettie Edmondson, who has recovered from the concussion incurred in a crash on the track in June. The team will be completed by another European Champion in Scot Katie Archibald.

Multiple World Champion Amy Cure will replace Archibald in Monday’s Road Race, in an otherwise unchanged team, which boasts two former winners in Wild and Fahlin.

“It will be a tough but fun day that I’m looking forward a lot to,” Fahlin said. “And even more so racing in the Swedish jersey will be even more special of course!”
