Chantal Blaak wins women’s road world title


Dutch champion Chantal Blaak took a surprise victory in the women’s world championship road race in Bergen on Saturday.
The 27-year-old used her more illustrious team-mates Anna van der Breggen, the Olympic champion, and Annemiek van Vleuten, the time-trial world champion, as a foil to escape to a solo victory at the end of the 152.8km street circuit course.
