After finishing second in the same event last year, Pfeiffer Georgi left the start ramp in Dumfries looking to go one better this time round – and that she did; powering home to take the British U23 TT title.

Faced with the 22 kilometre long parcours, Georgi followed the pacing plan perfectly and kept a solid tempo and speed throughout the course. Putting the power down on the mostly flat route, Georgi kept enough in the tank to dig deep on the drag up to the line where she would ultimately best the second placed finisher Backstedt by 12 seconds.

A smiling Georgi said: “This win is really special for me as I didn’t expect it and wasn’t sure how I was going during the ride compared to the others. I went out pretty hard and just tried to hold on and was surprised to hear that it was enough when I crossed the line. I’m definitely going to enjoy this tonight and then focus on the road race on Sunday.”
