It’s always nice when you get ‘new’ people on the podium but especially for Charlotte as I’ve seen her work her ass off for others so often in the years I’ve been shooting races but not made an appearance on the podium. Also I remember Anastasia Iakovenko in a break on the same stage last year that didn’t stick. If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!
