World Championships: Lotte Kopecky wins elite ladies’s highway race



Lotte Kopecky (Belgium) gained the elite ladies’s highway race on the World Championships in Glasgow, soloing to victory after dropping Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (Denmark) on the climb of Scott Road with 5.5km to go.

The pre-race favorite picked up her third rainbow jersey of the week – and Belgium’s first elite ladies’s highway title in half a century – along with her rasping late assault. Demi Vollering (Netherlands) pipped Uttrup Ludwig within the dash for second place, 7 seconds down on Kopecky.
