Nick 27th in WOC sprint final

Nick Simonin ran to an all-time best Irish sprint performance in the streets of Lausanne today, finishing in 27th place. With smart route choices and good speed, he was in a top 10 position at control 9 but dropped some time en route to 10. He pulled back 8 places after that to give his first top 30 WOC finish, bettering his result of 41st in 2010. An impressive Swiss men’s team took all the medals, with Matthias Kyburz claiming the title of World Champion. Simone Niggli won the women’s race.
