Rohan Dennis defended his entire time trial title by winning gold in the Road World Championships at Yorkshire.
The Australian, 29, completed the 54km route from Northallerton to Harrogate within 1 hour five minutes five minutes.
That was 1min 9secs faster than Belgium’s champion Remco Evenepoel, while Italy’s Filippo Ganna took bronze.
Alex Dowsett finished fifth – his best result in a universe time trial – to make a second Olympic place to Great Britain.
An Tokyo 2020 spot was procured by A finish in time trial.
After being called up following the withdrawal of 2018 Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas, john Archibald, who helped GB acquire a bronze Sunday, was 14th.
Since abandoning the parade on the eve of the time trial period in July, dennis was rushing.
He was the final rider to begin, closing the gap around 2018 bronze medallist Victor Campenaerts and Vuelta a Espana winner Primoz Roglic before advancing at the time set by Evenepoel, who won the junior road race and time trial titles in last season’s World Championships.
Evenepoel, who jumped the under-23 category this season to compete at elite level, is expected to challenge for a medal in Sunday’s road race.
