Brand: “We basically kept all the numbers up front”

"The whole week i thought about entering velodrome, how cool it would be. But then I was really focused! I tried to think about the sprint, it was super hard to beat Lotte [Kopecky] even though she was tired. I think getting 3rd was the highest possible position for today. The first part was chaotic. When Ellen [van Dijk] had a puncture, that was quite bad, because it was early on the cobblestones. When she was nearly back, I went in the breakaway with Lotte. And we still had a good team behind, so that was perfect. We basically kept all the numbers up front. For me, it was ideal to just be in this group, with no pressure. We came back together, Elisa went, and we never saw her back. I definitely enjoyed! It was hurting, but it was also fun, I really liked it. Let’s recover a little bit but I’m definitely coming back."
