Elite Men & Elite WomenThe Elite Men's race was a superb advert for the sport, with a brave attempt to win from the front and a furious battle for third place which went right to the line. Earlier, the Elite Women's race saw an almost race-long battle for the lead between two of the world's leading riders, before a dramatic final lap turned the expected result on its head!
