Interesting race but with two too fast Colnagos, as most of the time. Zdenek Stybar rode well but not in front for the gold after Niels Albert attacked. Got Meussen with him and Sven Nys was chasing. Meussen dropped and Nys caught. So it became a race with Nys and Albert again. Albert rode fast but Nys showed why he is as good as he is. Seeing where Albert have most problems and then attacking their on last lap. Sven Nys won ahead of Niels Albert. Zdenek Stybar was in the chasing group but attacked at the end and ended 3rd:
Marianne Vos won the womens race with over a minute down to Katie Compton. Sanne Cant 3rd.
