Big shout out to American Evelyn Stevens who took silver in the women's tt losing to surprise surprise ZE German Judith Arndt. Stevens crossed the line with the best time and had to wait it out only to be bested by the soon to be retired 4 time champ Arndt. Look for Evelyn to take this title next year as well dominate the woman's road race on Saturday and women's race scene in general. USA USA!
Tony Martin successfully defended his time trial world championship yesterday, nipping young American Taylor Phinney by 5 seconds (damn!). Martin looked to be running out of gas near the end but managed to hold on, we'll see if he has what it takes to fend off the Americans in the coming years. Tejay Van Garderen solidified the USA's tt strength with a 4th place. Borat's cousin (Vasil Kiryienka) came in 3rd and Alberto Contador proved he's nothing without his carne coming 3 minutes back in 9th.
