The Netherlands' Annemiek van Vleuten was the clear victor in the women's road race at the International Cycling Union (UCI) Road World Championships in Yorkshire.

Compatriot Anna van der Breggen pulled clear late in the race to win silver, and Australia's Amanda Spratt took bronze.

The 36-year-old van Vleuten is the third consecutive Dutch victor of the race.

It was a first world road race title for the 36-year-old Van Vleuten, who was world time trial champion in 2017 and 2018 before giving up her title to American Chloe Dygert earlier this week.

"Then I had a gap and I continued", she added. But he said continue.

Busting Flu Vaccine Myths to Keep You Safe
Tullberg says if you are someone who feels like you don't need a flu shot because you never get the flu, it's not all about you. In addition to flu shots, the Health Department also offers pneumonia shots, shingles shots and other vaccines by appointment.

"Maybe to do a 100km solo is the present for the hard work I do on the bike, all the altitude camps. Maybe I made a bit of history today".

There were still well over 100 kilometres to race, which under normal circumstances would be too far for a breakaway of this kind to succeed in a world championship, but as the kilometres passed the chasers diminished in strength, with Deignan ceding ground when they reached her home town with around 40 kilometres from the finish.

This time there were no mishaps as she produced a ride already being compared to Chris Froome's epic 80km solo on his way to winning the 2018 Giro d'Italia.

Van der Breggen, the Olympic champion, was van Vleuten's nearest opponent in Yorkshire but still finished was more than two minutes behind in 4:08:20.

"I felt so many emotions on the line - it's such a big win for me, I've been world time trial champion but road champion you get to wear the jersey so much more".
