London Olympics cycling: Dutch cyclist Voss wins women`s road raceLondon: Dutch cyclist Marianne Voss took the gold in the women`s road race Sunday after leading a three-rider breakaway that took all the medals at the London Olympics here Sunday.

Lizzie Armitstead was second for Britain with Russia`s Olga Zabelinskaya took the bronze after the trio broke away from the peloton in the last hour of the race.


Voss now has two Olympic gold medals after winning the points race in the velodrome in Beijing four years ago.

For Britain, Armitstead`s silver is a consolation after the highly-rated men`s team led by Mark Cavendish failed to come close to the medals Saturday.

The result meant that both the men`s and women`s road races were decided by breakaways rather than a bunch sprint.


Breakaways are more likely to be successful at the Olympics, where riders are not allowed the radios they use at other major events, making it harder for the peloton to judge the necessary pace to reel in escapees.
