TAGS:

The final day of road cycling events at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games kicks off on Wednesday, August 10 with the women’s time trial.

A total of 25 places are available in the event, with a maximum of two places awarded to the top qualifying nations.

Kristin Armstrong (USA) goes into the event as the defending Olympic champion – and is one of the big names to beat in the hilly 29.86km test against the clock.

Having claimed a silver medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics time trial, Emma Pooley is in the race for Great Britain. She will face stiff opposition not only from Armstrong, but also the Dutch pair of road race winner Anna van der Breggen and Ellen van Dijk.

Trixi Worrack (Germany), Lotte Kopecky (Belgium), Linda Villumsen (New Zealand), Katrin Garfoot (Australia), Evelyn Stevens (USA), Olga Zabelinskaya (Russia) and Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Poland) are among the other names to watch out for.
