Team results after the women's road race, including the men's race, where results go 30 deep, starting with 150 points for first, down to 1 point for 30th. I extended it to 30th due to the strong presence of third-tier cycling nations in the men's RR results in the 21-30 positions, and surely these are still quality placings on this selective course in such challenging conditions. Team USA, I am sure, hopes to improve during the time trials over the next two days.

The bike rankings will be tougher, as I don't know by inspection the bikes ridden by many of the non-Webcor women. I'd need to do some research for that. But nice result for Boardman Cycles! Interesting to see Nicole Cooke switch from Dura-Ace to SRAM Red during the year.
