INEOS Grenadiers (United Kingdom) - Men's Olympic road race: Musashinonomori Park › Fuji International Speedway, 234km.
Richard Carapaz stormed to gold with a tremendous solo attack in the men’s road race to make Olympic Games history for Ecuador.
The 28-year-old’s expertly-timed move in the closing stages of the race saw him go clear of breakaway companion Brandon McNulty (USA), before holding off the advances of an elite chase group.
Carapaz's victory marks Ecuador’s first-ever Olympic medal in cycling and only the third medal from any sport in the country’s history. Wout van Aert (Belgium) and Tadej Pogacar (Slovenia) rounded out the podium at the Fuji International Speedway.
