Summer Olympics 2021 Tokyo: Favourites road race – women

Annemiek van Vleuten rio - Summer Olympics 2021 Tokyo: Favourites road race – womenimage: Cor VosAre the Dutch going to do a clean sweep? All four should be capable to win a medal and succeed one of their leaders, Anna van der Breggen. The other, Annemiek van Vleuten, crashed out while leading the road race in Rio five years ago.

Looking at the recent editions of the Worlds, the Dutch won gold from 2018 to 2020 – respectively, with Anna van der Breggen (2021, 2019), Annemiek van Vleuten (2020) and Chantal Blaak (2018). The latter – winner of the recent Strade Bianche – did not make the selection, underlining the strength of the Dutch team.

The other two Dutch are Demi Vollering and Marianne Vos. Vollering won this year’s Liège-Bastogne-Liège and La Course, while Vos pocketed three stages wins at the Giro d’Italia Donne earlier this month. The Olympic Champion of the London Games in 2012 also took the spoils at the spring classics Amstel Gold Race and Gent-Wevelgem.
