Fabian Can­cel­lara saves the best un­til last with a swan­song vic­tory in the Olympic Games time trial in Rio. He'd come up just short in the Clas­sics in his inal sea­son but put ev­ery­thing into one last tilt at the Olympics, which he'd also won in 2008. Tom Du­moulin, who had been a hot favourite all year, had in­jured his wrist at the Tour de France and con­ceded 47 sec­onds to in­ish sec­ond, while Chris Froome took bronze by four sec­onds ahead of Jonathan Cas­tro­viejo. It turned out to be Can­cel­lara's inal race as a pro­fes­sional: what a way to bow out.
