Russian cyclist Anton Vorobyev, a spokesman for the continental team "Itera-Katusha" and trainee professional team of the World Tour "Katyusha", won the gold medal in the individual competition among riders under 23 years old at the World Cup on the highway, which takes place in the Netherlands. Russian young athletes did not win "gold" at the world championships since 2006. Recall Michael Ignatieff became the greatest cyclist of the planet in 2005.
At a distance of 36 kilometers from the Landgrave to Valkenburg Anton Vorobyev showed absolutely the best result — 44 minutes 9.02 seconds, which allowed the Russian citizen to become the new world champion in the individual race among young people under 23 years of age. Silver medalist, Australian Rohan Dennis, lost Vorobiev 44.39 seconds and the bronze medalist, another Australian Damien Howson, gave the Russian world champion 51.12 seconds.
