Quote Of The Day
“But Jenkins had other ideas. Using the downhill just after the turn to his advantage, he gently upped his tempo and focused on catching [Andy] Butchart. ‘I was just working on kind of catching Butchart,” Jenkins told reporters later. ‘He got a bit of a gap on me. Then, once I started to go downhill I knew I was going to get Butchart.’ Jenkins soon passed the Scotsman on the left side of the roadway. Cheserek was already near the bottom of the hill about to tackle the final, short climb to the finish line, when Jenkins shifted to his top gear. ‘It’s one of those great things about racing where when I could tell I was gaining on him, and he could tell that I was coming,’ Jenkins said. He passed Cheserek on the Kenyan’s left, and there was no response. Cheserek looked behind him and immediately realized he was now running for second. Jenkins had the finish line to himself, breaking the tape with his arms outstretched. ‘I was just trying to stay as strong as I could for those last few meters,’ said Jenkins who was worried he had started to sprint too early.”
