Well done to Mark Cavendish on becoming the World Champion in Denmark.
The flat course in Copenhagen looked perfect for the 26-year-old and so it proved as he beat Australian Matt Goss to the line in a sprint finish at the end of the 260km route.
Germany’s Andre Griepel pipped Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland) for the bronze medal.
Cavendish becomes only the second British rider to become men’s world road race champion after Tom Simpson in 1965.
And the HTC-Highroad rider was quick to pay homage to his team-mates after adding the rainbow jersey to a palmares that already includes 20 Tour de France stage wins and the green jersey this year.
"There couldn’t be another result after the way the guys rode today. I’m so so proud, Hopefully we can make the double with this title and the Olympics next year."
