That crowd is awesome...big credit to the people of Bergen.
Touch wood but they've behaved really, really well so far too, not crowding the cyclists too much. Hope that doesn't change when the biggest guns come up.
Keldermann with a strong race. Let's see how high he ends up.
Rain suddenly come in hard. This could ruin it for Roglic, Dumoulin and Froome. Oliveira must fancy his chances now. Nerve-wracking!
Wow, Dumoulin! What a performance.
Only Tony Martin left. Roglic silver and Froome bronze.
Absolutely immense performance from Dumoulin.
Chantal Blaak wins the women's road race. With Van Vleuten and Dumoulin winning the ITTs it could be a clean sweep for the Dutch!
He's a freak!
Sagan is the perfect one day cyclist. I wouldn't be surprised if he won at least another five World Champs before he retires.
Absolutely heartbreaking for Kristoff though.
And a bummer for the TV viewers as the helicopter lost signal with a few K to go so all mobile cameras on the bikes cut out. Thank feck the stationary cameras all worked perfectly for the last K.
Certainly added to the excitement waiting for them to appear for the last 1km!
Certainly feel for Kristoff. He had it won with 50m to go. He was just up against the best long course rider of a number of generations.
Big shout out to Bling Matthews. He must be wondering what he has to do to beat Sagan as well. A bronze to add to Silver behind Sagan 2 years ago. Matthews is the same age (well 9 months younger) and must be cursing being the same age as Sagan. He could end up having a few more placings behind him and being remembered as the "nearly" man.
Sagan is just incredible. He won't win it in Innsbruck with 5,000m of climbing mind you! Nice to see Swifty up in 5th.
