Velocio-SRAM riding to a world championship

The race: Velocio-SRAM proved they know how to ride a team time trial. Today they they won their fourth straight world championship in the event.

Wait, here's the race as described by Velocio-SRAM. The team deserves to tell their own story:

Velocio-SRAM won their fourth consecutive team time trial World Championship today in Richmond, USA. The team crossed the line in a time of 47:35 to beat Boels Dolman by 6 seconds and RaboLiv by 56 seconds.

Velocio-SRAM had the fastest time at the first two intermediate time checks, narrowly ahead of Boels Dolman. It became clear it would be between these two teams for the first gold medal on offer at the UCI Road Cycling World Championships. At the third and final intermediate time check, the Dutch team had turned the tables on Velocio-SRAM to lead by just over three seconds. In an amazing team effort, and calculated tactics by Sports Director Ronny Lauke, Velocio-SRAM was able to regain the lead on the final climb to take victory in downtown Richmond.

German rider Trixi Worrack has been part of every winning team time trial World Championship team since the disciplines has returned to the World Championships four years ago in 2012. Matching her feat is Ronny Lauke who has been the Sports Director of the winning team for the last four years. Lauke said “The girls were very impressive today. They rode incredible.”

Defending individual time trial World Champion and now three-time team time trial World Champion Lisa Brennauer said “I’m so excited that we could win this race. We knew our opponents were getting stronger and stronger each year. You saw in Sweden World Cup when we lost and the results were so close. We knew we would have to fight to the finish to win here in Richmond. Our Sports Director Ronny Lauke was giving us the intermediate times throughout the race. In the last 3 kilometres he just kept saying that we have to fight and we have to give everything and that we can win this. My teammates and I are very happy.”
