The professional season is winding down with the UCI World Championships in Florence, Italy concluding today. On the mens elite side, Rui Costa won a wet road race making him the first from Portugal to do so. Tony Martin took the time trial on September 25th.
The championships encompass 7 days of racing with specific races for junior to elite level men and women. The winners of the elite women races were Ellen Van Dijk (TT) and repeat champion in the road race, Marianne Vos. Vos dominated the course as she has dominated women's cycling in recent years. She simply blew up the field as she did in taking the 2012 Olympic title in London.
