Emma Snowsill said after the race that she was very happy with second on this day, as Fernandez was flying....

One of the more interesting questions was put to Emma Snowsill regarding how much she was slowed by having a problem with her cycle shoes early on.

Snowsill explained that she had a problem with something else in transition and to save time didn't put her feet into her cycling shoes until the second lap(See photo below).
