Emotional Valverde wins Men’s Elite Road Race

Spanish rider Alejandro Valverde held off a tough field to clinch his first Men’s Elite Road Race title. Frenchman Romain Bardet was second overall, narrowly ahead of Canada’s Michael Woods in third and Dutchman Tom Dumoulin in fourth with Italy’s Gianni Moscon finishing a little further behind in fifth. Valverde, who had previously finished on the podium a record six times without winning, edged clear of a four-way sprint for the title to take the rainbow jersey. He survived the brutal final climb up Hottinger Holl, a 3.2 km stretch with a maximum gradient of 28 percent, beginning the descent to the finish line with Bardet and Woods for company and Dutchman Tom Dumoulin in hot pursuit.
