Belgium's Philippe Gilbert put in a trademark attack on the final climb of the Cauberg to take the men's road race world title ahead of Edvald Boasson Hagen and Alejandro Valverde. Gilbert capped his fine late-season form with a convincing win in an enthralling 267-kilometre race in the Netherlands to take the first rainbow jersey of his career. No-one could match the 30-year-old's pace after Gilbert put in a decisive dig on the eleventh and final ascent of the legendary Cauberg climb.
