Fabian Cancellara is on the hunt for a missing trophy in his case, the World Championship road title. The 33-year-old Swiss rider has dominated the cobbled classics and time trialled to four world titles and an Olympic title, but lacks a rainbow jersey in the road race. He hopes to change that on Sunday.

"I wouldn't give up any of my other wins for this road race title, but of course, I want to win the Worlds," Cancellara said. "It's something missing in my palmarès."
