The Dutchwoman was well clear of silver medallist Linda Villumsen (New Zealand) last year, putting nearly half a minute into her.

Along with Villumsen, American riders Carmen Small and Evelyn Stevens, and Germans Lisa Brennauer and Trixi Worrack will put up a fight for the medals over the course which features a slight ride before the finish – enough to put a sting into tired legs.

Britain will not field any riders in this year’s event, the official reason given by British Cycling being: “We have chosen not to enter anyone into the elite women’s time trial event this year as we don’t believe we have a contender for a medal and we are obliged to use our resources where we have the best chance of success.”
