Annemiek van Vleuten says Chloé Dygert is now the favorite to win the Olympics in the individual time trial.
The women's world championships road race saw Chloé Dygert try to chase down Annemiek van Vleuten. Today, we look at the power output from both riders during the race.
American cycling hit a high point during the UCI world road championships in Yorkshire, winning seven medals, three of them gold. The race produced dramatic wins by Chloé Dygert in the women's elite time trial, and by Quinn Simmons and Megan Jastrab in the junior road races. Longtime race photographer Casey B. Gibson was there to document the action, and to snap photos of Team USA behind the scenes, as the riders, directors, and coaches prepared for the races.
Van Vleuten led home a Dutch one-two with van der Breggen in second and Australian Spratt taking third. U.S. rider Dygert Owen's attacking ride left her unrewarded in fourth place.
