Olympic Games Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
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.
