“I’m really happy with my ride yesterday and that I was able to win and to share the podium with my teammate Noah,” Barry said. “This was a huge target for me as it means I’m automatically qualified for the junior time trial world championships in Zurich which is super exciting. I have the nationals crit and road race coming up later this week before I go back to racing in Europe for two Nations Cup stage races. My legs seem to be pretty good so I’m really looking forward to racing more the next couple weeks!”

The 16-year-old is having a fantastic season in his first year as a under-19 racer. He was 7th at Paris-Roubaix for juniors, a stage win and the overall at the Tour du Bocage et de l’Ernée, a stage win at Ster van Zuid-Limburg, as well as the overall at the Valley of the Sun.
