Michal Kwiatkowski from Poland posted the fastest time of the day to win the Worlds time trial title in the junior ranks. Kwiatkowski's time was 36'21"21. He was only five seconds ahead of Germany's Jakob Steigmiller. Pre-race favourite and recent pursuit champion Taylor Phinney (USA) ended the day with a bronze medal, less than ten seconds back.

Phinney, the defending champion, has nonetheless confirmed that he is one of the strongest and most consistent juniors out there.

The tough course was made even harder by a stiff headwind.

The grand finale of the UCI Junior World Championships is the individual road race being ridden through the streets of Cape Town on Sunday, July 20. Start time for women is 10:00 and men head out at 14:00.

The 'Grandt' Dane Peterson powers to victory

The 2008 UCI Junior World Championships continued today in Wellington with the Ladies time trials. In a strong headwind, Maria Grandt Petersen from Denmark took the gold medal with a time of 21'03"11 minutes. Valeriya Kononenko from the Ukraine won the silver medal, Laura Dittmann from Germany took bronze.

The riders had a 'baptism of fire' as they set off with a three-kilometre climb, testing their strength and endurance from the start. The wind, the rolling gradient and the variable road conditions were testing and after the race an ecstatic Petersen said, "I felt very good today, but the hills were very bad and for me, the conditions were difficult. But I am happy to win here in South Africa."

Michelle Corbett was the only South African rider in the women's race and put in a good effort. Her 22'47"480 secured her 18th in the race. 16-year old Michelle Corbett was the under-16 road and time trial in 2007 and won three medals at the South African Track Championships and the junior road and time trial titles - not bad for the youngest member of the team who will be riding in green and gold in all three disciplines.
