Gerrit Glomser of Austria had high hopes going into the men's road race Sunday at the World Championships, but they were dashed by a broken chain and a lack of assistance. It was the eighth lap and he was going up the Birkenkopf when the "bitter and unexpected" happened.

"Suddenly something went 'crack' and I shot backwards," Glomser said. "The WM neutral assistance autos drove right by me, as though I were invisible. At some point it was all over, I had no chance any more, and so I made myself necklace out of my chain."
