Wiggins finished 46" behind Martin to capture the silver medal. Cancellara held on for the bronze medal 2" behind Wiggins. 

ORICA-AIS had two riders racing the event: Daniel Teklehaimanot (ERI) and Sam Bewley (NZL). Teklehaimanot slotted into 54th place at 6'49 while Bewley was 11" further back in 56th place. 

"Today was a tough race. The length and the nature of the course were hard both physically and mentally. I had a bit of an issue with a recurring injury that didn't make things super for me. I'm working with the team to resolve it, but we're not there yet. The injury wasn't the only issue nor is it an excuse. It was just one of those days where things didn't really click. It's been a bit of an up and down few weeks for me with a bad virus I had earlier in the month, and today I just wasn't any where near on top of my game. I felt good leading up to the race, but it was a disappointing ride." - Sam Bewley
