German Lisa Brennauer swept to victory in the women’s time trial event at the 2014 UCI Road World Championships in Ponferrada, Spain, on Tuesday.

Defending champion and pre-race favourite Ellen van Dijk (Netherlands) was caught in a badly-timed rainstorm and came home soaking wet in seventh position.

Hanna Solovey (Ukraine) claimed silver, with Evelyn Stevens (USA) taking bronze. There were no British competitors in the event.
