Another medal at the European Championships Track in Grenchen for a Boels Dolmans rider: Amalie Dideriksen (Denmark) won silver at the omnium. In this Olympic discipline only British rider Laura Trott was able to perform better.
Earlier this week Kasia Pawlowska (Poland) won the European title at the points race. 'I am very happy with this result" Dideriksen told the press afterwards. "I knew silver was the maximum for me here, because Laura Trott was just to strong. I did not really know what to expect when I went to Grenchen to do the omnium. I basically wanted to gain points for the Olympics in Rio. Silver is just a real good result, I am very happy with this."
