The Race: Australia brought a lot of confidence to the race. They worked hard most of the day at the front. Though there were numerous attacks, at the start of the final lap the peloton was intact.

Brayan Stiven Ramirez of Colombia went clear, but on the final climb Norwegian rider Sven Bystrom, who had been biding his time, trying not to expend any needless energy, exploded of the front. He shot past Ramirez, descended like an insane Viking and used his excellent time trialing skills to hold off the pack by seven seconds. The Australians seemed to have burned all their matches and could not catch the Norwegian. They did get an excellent consolation prize, Caleb Ewen won the field sprint for the silver medal.

Normally a domestique, this is Bystrom's first 2014 victory. In 2015 he will join his compatriot Alexander Kristoff on the Katusha team.
