Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (U23 road race and time trial)
"This is a special competition, because we are racing on home soil. I'll do my outmost to get a good result. However, the course is better suited for a different type of rider. On a flat course like this the favourites will be the fast riders. Both in the TT and the RR."
Christina Perchtold (elite road race)
"I am happy to be selected for the Europeans after a year full of ups and downs. It is always special to stand on the startline in your national colours, realizing that you got chosen to represent your country."
Clara Koppenburg (U23 road race and time trial)
"I'm super excited. When I got nominated for both races I was super happy and proud to represent Germany in those races. For the RR I will try to help Lisa as much as I can, just like in the nationals. Of course, if there is a good opportunity to try something I will go. For the TT I hope for good legs and more luck than at the nationals where everything went wrong. I think if I have a good day I can get a good result!"
Lisa Klein (U23 road race and time trial)
"I'm really happy that I made the selection for the European Championships and for sure excited to race the under 23 competition with my teammate Clara. It's always special to represent your country and I am looking forward to doing it with a good performance. I think the team is having a great season so far so every one of us can be confident."
Lotta Lepistö (elite road race and time trial)
"It's cool to race with the national team. It's special after the bronze medal at worlds last year because we see everyone together again. I hope we can do a good race. I represent Finland in all the races with pride. Now it's nice to have a Finnish team around me."
Nicole Hanselmann (elite road race and time trial)
"I'm doing both races at the Europeans. It is an honor to represent my country at the championships. The Swiss cross on the breast always motivates me to give my best."
