Pooley is having an amazing 2010 season. She becomes the third Briton to win a World title. The other two are Chris Boardman 1994 World TT & Tom Simpson 1965 World Road Race.
Emma Pooley... World Champ!
Her 2010 palmares are lengthy: La Fleche Wallonne, Grand Prix de Suisse, Grand Prix Elsy Jacobs, Tour de l'Aude, Giro del Trentino, British National Road Champion, GP de Plouay-Bretagne & UCI World Championship Women's TT.
She ripped through the 22.9km course in 32'48.44 and was the only rider to go under 33'. A well deserved victory as she beat out Germany's Judith Arndt in second & New Zealand's Linda Melanie Villumsen for third.
Special consideration has to go to superwoman, Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli who at 51 (next month she turns 52) beat out many to take a very respectful fifth place.
No race radios were allowed, meaning no intermediate time checks, so it was full pedal to the metal!
Madame Longo riding well to fifth!
