There were some riders who were happy and some who weren't at the end of today's Elite Men's time trial. Cyclingnews was at the finish line and spoke to Brad Wiggins (Great Britain), who finished 7th. "I hoped for a top 10 today, so I finished seventh which is a good result for me," he said. "I'm pleased, very happy. It was difficult to get in the top five, there were so many good guys who came in; so, I'm just pleased that I got into the top 10."
On the other hand, Sweden's Gustav Larsson finished 27th and didn't perform as well as he wanted. He placed fourth in the Verona 2004 World's. This year he was one of the last ten to start, but he couldn't get in the top 10. "My time trial wasn't too brilliant although I don't know the time," said Larsson. "I had problems like last year where there were a few more corners, but anyway I wasn't as good as last year either. Hopefully, I have a better season and I'll prepare really well next year."
