Lucy Garner continued her fine form in 2014 by claiming another podium finish at the Noordwijk Classic on Wednesday.

The Sky Academy Sports Scholar finished third behind Bigla's Koedooder Vera and Jip van den Bos of the Netherlands to secure her seventh top three finish of the season.

Coming off the back of a victory in Zeilberg last week, Garner's latest podium came in a race won in previous years by the likes of Marianne Vos, in 2007, and her Giant-Shimano team-mate Amy Pieters who was victorious last year following a second and a third place finish in the two years previous.

It rounds off a fantastic week for the 19-year-old from Leicester, who, as well as recording two podium finishes, was named in the England Commonwealth Games squad last Wednesday.

"I'm thrilled, I'm so excited to be part of the England team," she told Sky Sports News on her selection. "I'm really pleased with how my season has gone."
