Saw the last 105km was a brutal gripping race with Richard Carapaz taking gold for Ecuador, Wout Van Aert silver and Pogacar Bronze....have to feel sorry for Van Aert burring himself in the chasing group with no help from anyone else, made for great racing though.

With Van Aert being such a good sprinter as well as unbelievable all round cyclist, he was unlikely to get any help from anyone if he didn't have any teammates with him.

Incredible effort to get the gap down to 15 seconds nonetheless…was good to see them racing on the Fuji Speedway, it didn’t look as flat on a bike as it did when they raced there in F1.

Good to see Adam Yates in the medal-chasing bunch and giving it a go in the final straight.
