Rough Terrain Rio196
Jolanda Neff (Switzerland) road behind those chasing her teammate Linda Indergand. Once Indergand had been caught it was Neff's turn to carry the flag for her country. The fans along the road had seen their Polish countrywoman ride by, showing her the Polish flag as she did so. They seemed a little disinterested in the Swiss woman chasing their girl down. Neff was never able to catch the wheels of those up the road. The section that she is riding now is strewn with large cut granite, somewhat reminiscent of the early paving of ancient Roman roads.
