Philippe Gilbert and Marianne Vos took the wins in their respective world championship races this weekend. Gilbert made everyone forget his less than stellar spring campaign, and Vos capped off the end of a phenomal season.
Here is a video of the final 5 km of the mens race. It all in French, and all I could understand was, “champion du monde”.
Here is the video of the highlights from the womens race. Tragically the goons from NBC Universal are providing commentary, so you might just want to turn your sound off.
I’m not informed enough to provide any sort of analysis or major recap of the races, so I’ll leave that to the folks who get paid to do so. I’m sure cyclingsnooze and velosnooze will have plenty of articles going up about these races over the next day or so. I’m pretty sure they are drinking a lot in Belgium tonight, and hopefully Tomke is enjoying the company of some lovely ladies.by
