Janet Birkmyre stuck to the same game plan as last year as she again cleaned up all five sprints to claim her fifth European Gold medal with a total of 25 points. Petra Kluender – an age category up from Birkmyre in this combined event – turned in another typically gutsy ride to take the Sliver with 12 points.

Last year’s Gold medalist Christelle Ribault of France turned herself inside out to secure the win this time as Germany provided a formidable opponent in the shape of Sabrina Hucks with Siobhan Mullan of Great Britain again having to settle for Bronze. Ribault’s consistency proved crucial in the end though and going into the last sprint, she was a single point ahead as Rosin Kennedy did her a favour in taking the 5 points on offer and the Ribault beat Hucks into third place
