Cycling world cup 2011 has finished with the men's road race. A warm September day, much nicer then most of the July and August days, witnessed an expected win of Mark Cavendish, the British rider born in Isle of Man. The British team was always there to help him, and this perfect strategy was successful. Large Norwegian crowd saw their favourite, Thor Hushovd (last year winner) finishing on the 170th position, behind the only Romanian rider, Andrei Nechita (position 135). You can see the full results here.
