Great ride and win by Viviani.

He proves once again that he's more versatile than just a sprinter. You can discuss about him not being the fastest or the strongest, but he delivers in all kinds of sprints and even different kinds of races. He wins classics with a long distance, stages in all grand tours, he wins championships by being offensive and he became olympic champion in the omnium. Thus, he is among the very best of his generation, for sure when it comes to sprinting.

Grande Elia!

By my calculations, with todays results of the European Championships road race, GB just missed out on getting a full squad to the World Championships at home, because they dropped to 11th on the UCI nations rankings.

Prior to the race, GB (in 10th) had 7093.98 and Denmark (in 11th) 7030.08 - a difference of 63.9 points.

Moerkoev and Asgreen got 101 points - Lawless got 30, and it is the last counting race - the UCI ranking for worlds goes public tonight.

If my calculations are right, GB missed out by 7,1 points, and Denmark will get to field 8 riders at worlds, while GB can only select 6.

That's pretty painful if true
 
Thats last weeks data, Simon Yates loses points from Poland (2nd and stage), however there is a gain from Tao G H and James Knox (5th and 10th I think)

Though Knox wasnt in top 8 but think he will move above Rowe

I guess so, but the results are there for Poland and Europeans, so maybe they are not in sync and the rankings don't update automatically as results come in?
