superb performance by the Swiss rider will add a gold metal to his bronze earned a few days ago on the road race. Cancellara collapsed and gasping put it all out there accelerating to the line.

Larsson surprised the field posting an incredible time that proved to be the mark to beat. He held off the big guns to earn a silver medal. Levi Leipheimer accelerated throughout the course to demand a place on the podium. He explained that he drew strength from the disappointment of missing this year’s Tour.

Contador started out strong but faded steadily. Cadel Evans put in a strong performance but just couldn’t get into the winners circle. Schumacher could not get it together finishing a disappointing 13th. Cummings and Zabriskie were just not able to get in the game.

Gold Medalist Kristen Armstrong

In the Women’s Race, Emma Pooley put up the time to beat riding fifth out of the gate. In the end only Kristin Armstrong of the USA was able to best the time. Karin Thürig won bronze edging out Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli and Christine Thorburn by a handful of seconds. This was a great ride by the US placing 1st and 5th.

Judith Arndt put in a great ride but could manage only sixth. Christiane Soeder finished 7th. You could argue that the road race took something out of her. Hanka Kupfernagel struggled to hold on to 11th

Great Brittan’s Nicole Cooke took the gold in the Beijing Olympic Women’s Road Race Emma Johansson of 2008 Olympic Women\'s Road Race MedalistsSweden and Tatiana Guderzo of Italy earned the silver and bronze respectively. Kristin Armstrong of the USA finished 43 Seconds back for 25th, Amber Neben finished 33rd and Christine Thorburn finished 52nd

The women’s race started under threatening skies which turned to rain on the road to the Great Wall. The pack stuck together for most of the first 80km with a handful of riders reigning in any potential threats. Thorburn was apparently working for Armstrong to keep the peloton contained on the flats.

The first attack of consequence was executed by Boyarskaya (RUS) who was set up by a flyer from her compatriot Burchenkova. A lead was built then slowly reduced by Neben (USA) again probably working for Armstrong. Pooley (GB) and Guderzo (ITA) got away on the final circuit of two and finally captured the Russian.

Judith Arndt (GER) put in a strong effort to close to the break. Attacks by several favorites in including Longo-Ciprelli (FRA) were closed down before any damage was done. Soeder of Austria put in several strong efforts one of which allowed Guderzo to catapult on a solo break. Soeder later gapped the peloton joined by Johansson (SWE), Villumsen (DEN), and Cooke (GB). They chased down Guderzo. The five worked to the line maintaining enough of a gap to stay clear.

Cooke Crashes the Finish

Cooke Crashes the Finish

With a half kilometer to go Cooke faded slightly then shot out with only Johansson and Guderzo were able to hang on. Villumsen and Soeder faded unable to hold the pace. Cooke powered to the line to take the prize.

That was another fabulous road race on a spectacular course.
