The Race: Lisa Brennauer is having a good week at the world championships. On Sunday she was part of the Specialized-Lululemon team that won the women's team time trial. Today she did it on her own, winning the elite women's individual time trial world championship. That's two gold medals for the talented German racer.

At the first time split Brennauer was fifth, well behind leader Anna Solovey. By the second check at km 21.31, she had hammered her way to second, still behind Solovey by about four seconds. In the final stretch she must have gone all out because the was more than 18 seconds ahead of Solovey at the finish.

"The last four kilometers were super important," explained Brennauer. "I knew I had to make sure I wasn't cooked going into the climb and then the last four kilometers had to be full gas."
