congrats to the whole spanish team for pulling it off

too bad zabel didn't win though, he'd really deserved it too

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Freire seals world title


Freire proved too strong in the race's final sprint

Oscar Freire has won the World Championship road race for the third time in his career.

The Spanish sprinter found himself in a group of 15 riders as the race reached the final kilometres in Verona, Italy.

And as the leading pacemen moved to the front in the final kilometre, Freire put in a breathtaking burst of speed to edge Germany's Erik Zabel into second.

Italian rider Luca Paolini found himself in contention in the dying moments but had to make do with third.

Pre-race favorite and Olympic gold medalist Paolo Bettini of Italy retired earlier in the race after injuring his knee in a freak accident with his team car.

World Championship road race result
1 Oscar Freire (Spain) 6 hours 57 minutes 15 seconds
2 Erik Zabel (Germany)
3 Luca Paolini (Italy)
4 Stuart O'Grady (Australia)
5 Allan Davis (Australia)
6 Alejandro Valverde (Spain)
7 Michael Boogerd (Netherlands)
8 Chris Horner (USA)
9 Damiano Cunego (Italy)
10 Frank Schleck (Luxembourg)
