Congratulations to Abingdon student and England under-20 competitor, Quinn, who was placed 5th in the Trofeo Opitergium Road Race, Oderzo.

Spectacular to watch, the race takes place over a series of 1km loops, with the teams completing ten laps during the 10km race. Despite not taking place at the peak of summer, the athletes still had to contend with very humid conditions. Working together as a team, the English men’s team stuck in the pack for the first five laps. Quinn was up at the front for most of the race. As the race progressed, the pace slowly wound up as some athletes started to drop off. With team positions up for grabs, the whole team made every second count, giving 100% to the line to be rewarded with third place overall.
