Sao Paulo – The Colombian Luciana Osorio and the Brazilian Guillerme Assis became the new Pan-American champions in the road, youth category, after the fourth day of the Continental Championship that will be held until next Sunday in Sao Jose Dos Campos, with the presence of 39 countries.

Osorio won her second gold medal in Brazil, since last Tuesday she had won the individual time trial in her category, hence this title in the 59 kilometers long-distance race of the Pan American Road Championship, leaves her as the best cyclist of the event so far, while it represented the fourth title for Colombia in that race organized by the Pan American Cycling Confederation (COPACI).

The young rider from Antioquia beat Chilean Javiera Mansilla and Uruguayan Florencia Revetria, who finished second and third, respectively, completing the podium of the youth event in Brazilian territory.

With this new triumph Luciana Osorio continues to expand her sporting achievements and becomes one of the best youth cyclists in the region after being champion of the Vuelta del Futuro 2023, national youth champion of the CRI and Ruta 2024, champion of the CRI and Ruta in the Bolivarian Youth Games Sucre 2024, and Pan American champion of the CRI and Ruta in Brazil 2024.

Brazil celebrates its first gold

In a sprint that perhaps was not the expected one, the Brazilian Guillerme Assis Moreira came in ahead of the Colombian Juan David Restrepo in the youth road race of the Pan American Road Championship, which was held over 106.2 kilometers in the municipality of Sao Jose dos Campos, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Unfortunately, with 200 meters to go, when Juan Diego Quintero from Valle del Cauca was shaping up to win the race, he suffered a fall after a member of the public crossed him and made him lose control of the bicycle.

In the end, Quintero came in ninth place, 1:27 behind the winner and another Brazilian Matheus Constantino took the bronze, after placing better than the rest of the peloton for the final pack.

Juan David Restrepo added a new medal with the ‘Colombian’ National Road Team, after winning the gold in the long-distance race at the Bolivarian Youth Games Sucre 2024.
