Honoré has since been caught up.

World Cycling Championships 3 hours ago

Another 156 km - 

What is Mikkel Frølich Honoré up to?

The Dane jumps away from the pack and chases, while a fellow countryman is in front of the pack.

What is the idea behind this?

World Cycling Championships 3 hours ago

Another 157 km - 

Bad luck for the Dutchman Martijn Tusveld, who has problems with his bike.

He can soon move on.

World Cycling Championships 3 hours ago

Another 158 km - 

Marc Hirschi and Michael Matthews can write history today if they take the title.

The Swiss and Australian have already grabbed the world title for riders under 23 years old.

Never before has a rider managed to win the world title in both the U23 and the elite.

Matthews became youth champion in 2010, Hirschi did that two years ago.

@wielersport By the absence of Lutsenko there are only two riders are left in this peloton, who could make #cycling history by being the very first U23 champion to win the elite title too: Matthews and Hirschi.
