And one other thing, while Van Vleuten was chasing solo (50-30 km), the gap to Kiesenhofer was barely narrowing. It narrowed for like 30 seconds during all that time.

So the Dutch still not applied the new motto? They are faster, stronger, higher, but not TOGETHER!

Van der Breggen said they (everyone in the group, basically) thought they had taken back everyone from the lead group once Plichta and Shapira were caught, they miscounted.   They also saw 1

Here is the presentation of the course. The landscape is pretty.

Before her fall? There is a video evidence of her asking the cameraman for time gaps.

Maybe I understood wrong during her interview (I was also watching other things), or she meant information about the composition of the group or something :p 

 

It's possible that she assumed the 5 minutes was to Plichta and Shapira and when they were caught, they thought they had everyone.

It's funny, Polish ES crew with 100 km left said the women can't let a breakaway reach 10 mins. :AUT wins gold in Summer Games? That must be a huge upset no matter if Kiesenhofer is a complete nobody.

 

Polish media quoted Anna vd Breggen who apparently said she doesn't even know who Kiesenhofer is :lol:

That's absolutely disaster for organisators. There should be some motocycling showing the right times and groups or at least at the first passing the finish line.

 

Neah, it's alright. Modern cyclists are so used to radio-controlled races it's always welcome there's one race where you have to do it on your own. Old school rules! It's the same with lack of pacemakers in athletics.

Great start for Plichta and Lach, Niewiadoma even has a problem to get place in Top8.... 2 days and we do not have medal and event one points from being in Top8... My prediction was 5-6 medals, but I expected more good starts from our athletes. I am happy for Austria. Italian and girls from Netherlands save energy, it was wise. 

Did you know that we have 4 boats in rowing finals and basically nobody who could have REAL medal chance didnt start yet? Be patient, please.

First austrian gold at summer olympics since 2004 apparently.

First Austrian gold medal in cycling since 1896 as I'm sure Grassmarket will remember vividly. Of course that was a 12 hour race rather than a four hour sprint like today's road race.
