Somarriba storms to win
Joane Somarriba powered her way to victory in the women's time trial at the world cycling championships in Hamilton, Canada, on Wednesday.

Somarriba finished the 20.8km course in 28 minutes 23.23 seconds, beating Germany's Judith Arndt, to give Spain their first-ever victory in the event.

Defending champion Zoulfia Zabirova faded badly late on to finish third.

Karin Thurig of Switzerland, bronze medallist last year, narrowly missed out on a repeat, finishing fourth.

Hometown favourite Genevieve Jeanson of Canada was fifth, while France's Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli, winner of the world championship time trial title four times in the last nine years, was sixth.
