Aug. 14:

Men's Road Road Race. 6:45 AM Eastern, 3:45 AM Pacific. 224.4 km; 17 x 13.2 kilometers in downtown Athens.


1. Paolo Bettini (Italy) 5hr 41min 44sec
2. Sergio Paolinho (Portugal) @ 1sec
3. Axel Merckx (Belgium) @ 8sec
4. Erik Zabel (Germany) @ 12sec
5. Andrej Hauptmann (Slovenia)
6. Kim Kirchen (Luxembourg)
7. Roger Hammond (Great Britain)
8. Frank Hoj (Denmark)
9. Kurt-Asle Arvesen (Norway)
10. Alexander Kolobnev (Russia)

The Race: On the first lap a crash took out World Champion Igor Astarloa as well as Michael Boogerd and Tour de France White Jersey Vladimir Karpets. The day is very hot 35 C (Mid 90's F).

At the halfway point (km 110) Magnus Backstedt who had been on a solo break for most of the day, was joined by Richard Virenque and Laszlo Bodrogi. Backstedt had a maximum lead of about three and a half minutes but now the trio is less than 2 minutes in front of the peloton.

Km 90. The break has been caught and 2004 Tour de France 2nd place Andreas Kloden as well as Magnus Backstedt have abandoned the race.

Km 160. The constant attacks and counters have thinned the field. 7 men including Robbie McEwen and Cristian Moreni are 40 seconds off the front. With no Germans, Spaniards, Frenchmen or Americans in the break, the peloton will be motivated to bring them back.

Km 175. The gap is only 20 seconds now. The rest of the group: Martin Elmiger (Switzerland), Gerrit Glomser (Austria), Unai Etxebarria (Venezuela), Cieran Power (Ireland) and Ryan Cox (South Africa).

Km 185. The break is caught. Ekimov has abandoned

Km 190. Bettini, Hamilton and Vinkourov had tried their legs in attacks. Things are still together with about 30 kilometers to go. The attacks did reduce the lead group to about, maybe 20. Ullrich and Hincapie are still there.

Km 200. Several hard attacks and it's together again. 2-time world champion Freire has quit. On the penultimate time up the hill Bettini attacks and takes Sergio Paulinho (Portugal) with him. Vinkourov and Ullrich are chasing. Leipheimer and Voigt have quit.

Km 215. The duo have opened up a big gap with little more than a lap to go the peloton with no one in between. This is a do-or-die move for Bettini. If he's caught he won't have the suds to try again.

Final lap. The gap is almost a half-minute.

Km 217. Bettini got a gap on Paulinho on the hill, but they they came together and now have a gap of over 40 seconds as they motor to the Gold and Silver just a few kilometers away. The pack will not catch them.

The finish: Merckx managed to extract himself from the field to chase the duo, but could not close the gap. Bettini beat Paulinho who led it out.
