Italy’s Tatiana Guderzo was third, 5 mins 26 secs behind Van der Breggen. Dani Rowe was the most astounding put British rider in 26th place, 8 mins 18 secs back. Sophie Wright was 41st, Hannah Barnes 45th and Dani Christmas 64th.

PERHAPS Even more Impressively, Annemiek @AvVleuten STILL managed to take SEVENTH place, after injuring her knee in an early fall, severe enough to be wheeled off to Hospital after race pic.twitter.com/pMkl9mU9JC

Rowe’s ride was not without show, having been engaged with an accident including Dutch rider Annamiek van Vleuten and following that, she had to suffer an issue with her cycle chain.

It’s incredibly annoying how the announcers in the women’s road world championship road race keep talking about tomorrow’s men’s race instead of what’s happening/happened in the women’s race going on RIGHT NOW. #UCIWorldChampionship
