Elite Women's ITT: Pooley Rockets to Victory

Worlds10-post_mediumGreat Britain's Emma Pooley upset the applecart a bit today with a solid victory in the Elite Women's Time Trial, launching into the virtual lead on the major climb of the course and extending it through the last 10km. Pooley rode a smooth tempo going both up and down the course, and crossed the line with a 43 second advantage over then-leader Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli. Things got close at the end, as first Linda Villumsen of New Zealand and finally German Judith Arndt threatened Pooley's time, but neither got within 15 seconds of the Brit. Arndt took silver by less than a second over Villumsen. Great day of racing for Britain and its former colonies.
