Like all of the competitors in a time trial, Aafke Suet of the Netherlands, could see her time as compared against those on the leader board as she approached the line. She stood on the pedals sprinting as hard as she could in hopes of toppling those who currently occupied the podium slots. While she did all she could, she was only able to cross the line, mouth agape, with the fifth best time on the day. With her finish, the Australians finished with two riders in the top three for the third year in a row in the Under 23 Women's Time Trial, however this year, the top of the podium was theirs!
