Cycling: Tony Martin retains world time-trial title at the Road World Championships
Thursday 20 September 2012
Germany's Tony Martin successfully defended his men's time-trial title at the Road World Championships in the Netherlands with a narrow triumph over Taylor Phinney of the United States.
Martin, the Olympic silver medallist behind Bradley Wiggins, completed the 45.7-kilometre route in 58min 38.76sec to claim Germany's second time-trial success in Limburg after Judith Arndt won the elite women's event on Tuesday.
Phinney finished just over five seconds behind in 58min 44.13sec, with bronze going to Vasil Kiryienka of Belarus. Alex Dowsett, Britain's sole representative, finished eighth, with Spain's Alberto Contador ninth.
* Victor Cabedo, a cyclist with the Spanish Euskaltel Euskadi team, was killed in a traffic accident while out training yesterday.
The 23-year-old Spaniard who competed in last week's Tour of Britain, died after a collision with a vehicle on a public highway north of Valencia.
