Coryn Rivera, who already owns a closet full of national championship jerseys in ’cross, road races, crits and time trials, just added to her trophy case with an impressive bronze medal in the Junior women’s World Championship road race in Offida, Italy. Rivera’s visit to the podium comes on the heels of a solid time trial the day before, which landed her in tenth place, 1 minute 45 down on the winner.

Rivera made the decisive split of seven women on the final lap and joined the melee for the sprint finish, finishing in the same time as French winner Pauline Ferrand Prevot. Prevot herself is no stranger to the cyclocross track – she finished 20th in the 2009 ’Cross Worlds and moved up to eighth last year in Tabor.

Rivera’s frequent rival, turned teammate for the US team for this international competition, Kaitlin Antonneau, took the sprint from the lead chase group to claim eighth place. Kendall Ryan, another strong American ’crosser, took tenth.

We look forward to seeing that trio come into cyclocross season with blazing form.
