Nicolas Roche impressive in Olympic road race

Nicolas Roche showed his worth today in the Olympic road race. He put in a hard attack on the climb after five hours of racing and was taken seriously by the Italian team who covered his move. The increase in pace caused by Roche’s effort resulted in my hot tip Schumi going out the back and abandoning!

Roche finished at about 10 minutes in a fair sized group that included Denis Menchov and must be well pleased with his ride.
