Emma Trott
in arrivo
La 24 inglese Emma Trott attualmente in forza alla Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team ha annunciato in lacrime dopo l'arrivo della frazione odierna del Women's Tour, che per altro partiva oggi da Cheshunt sua città natale, il ritiro dalle competizioni al termine della corsa britannica, la tappa di domani sarà dunque per lei l'ultima corsa
boh? Ha detto che adesso inizierà una nuova fase della sua vita in Nuova Zelanda Boh evidentemente aveva già pensato di lasciare tutto ma ha voluto finire con questa corsa, oggi tra l'altro lei e sua sorella Laura si sono messe davanti alla partenza a fare da guida a tutto il gruppo che le seguiva.
Laura Trott che ieri invece era caduta ed ha voluto concludere a tutti i costi la tappa per poter essere al via stamattina, poi gli esami hanno mostrato che non si era rotta niente ma però sicuramente sono state giornate particolari per tutte e due.

ecco qua

Emma Trott crossed the line in her home stage of the Friends Life Women’s Tour in tears today, and announced she was retiring from competition as of tomorrow.

The 24-year-old, who was born in Welwyn Garden City where this afternoon’s stage finished, turned professional in 2009.

However, the Boels-Dolmans rider admitted that a lack of enjoyment was the reason behind her decision which will see her bow out at the end of the inaugural event’s final day.

“I’ve not said anything until now, but I’m retiring after this race, so today means a lot more to me.”

“I started thinking it at the end of last year. I love cycling, and that’s the problem. I signed a deal with the team anyway, and sometimes when you’ve had a break you can come back mentally. I was in New Zealand with my partner, and I didn’t really want to come back.

“Then I lost two dear friends of mine, and that changed my perspective on life. I went on training camp, and I didn’t want to be there, I wanted to get home so badly.

“I raced, and the feelings weren’t the same as they were five years ago. I’ve been a pro for seven years, I’ve raced for 14, and I’ve enjoyed it. I have no regrets.”

Trott also described her emotions as she crossed the finish line in front of the biggest crowds of the race so far.

“It’s a bit emotional,” she added, close to tears. “I lost a friend at the start of the year, and he should have been there. I did the lead-out with seven or eight kilometres to go, and then I got dropped. So I rolled in – but it was quite nice to roll in in front of the crowds. I took the moment in, and I’ll keep it for life.

“I crossed the line in tears today. Tomorrow will be hard – the close of one chapter, the start of a new one. Monday morning is when it will sink in, I think. I won’t have to go on a recovery ride, I can stay in bed and get up whenever!”

She listed her career highlight as her victory in the time trial stage of the Gracia – Orlova race in 2010, in which she beat Marianne Vos.

Trott said: “I had a TT win against Vos, that was special. I’ve ridden for some of the best teams in the world, I’ve worked with Marianne, Ellen and Lizzie on this team, Nicole Cooke and Emma Pooley. It’s not been bad! I’m 24, and I feel like I’ve got so much more to give. I want a normal life.”
