Commonwealth Games 2018: Steele Von Hoff grabs impressive victory in road race

Commonwealth Games 2018

Steele Von Hoff took victory for the home nation in Saturday’s men’s road race at Commonwealth Games while Chloe Hosking scored gold in women’s category.

 

Silver went to Jon Mould from Wales who was riding with the big help of Team Sky’s man, Luke Rowe. He was able to become part of the finishing group (five riders) who showcased their sprint abilities by fighting to take the victory at yesterday’s 168.3km road race course.

 

On the other hand, women’s race (112.2km), just like the men’s one, came down to a reduced bunch at the last kilometers of the route with Dani Rowe being oriented by her teammate Elinor Barker.

 

“It’s not just my medal; it’s all of the girls. I feel like I’ve been waiting a long time for a bit of success. I’ve been working hard on the road for a few years now,” Rowe said right after yesterday’s race.
