The Race: I think l'Equipe summed it up perfectly with their headline "Specialized Invincible". The Women's Elite Team Trial event is only three years old, but Specialized has won it every time, including today at Ponferrada.

The disappointment of the day was with the Rabobank Liv team. First, they had mechanical problems, but were still on target for a medal. Then the woman thought to be the team's anchor, Marianne Vos (three times world road race champion, including winning the title in 2013), was dropped and then they lost another rider. But worse was waiting for them. While leading the reduced team, Annemiek van Vleuten ran into the barriers, taking down her teammates.
