Martin Beats Wiggins for Road Cycling Time-Trial World Title

Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Germany’s Tony Martin beat Olympic champion Bradley Wiggins by almost a minute to win his third consecutive time-trial title at the road world cycling championships in Italy.

Martin finished the 58-kilometer (36-mile) ride into Florence in a time of 1 hour, 5 minutes and 36.65 seconds. It’s the 28-year-old’s second gold medal of the championships, after he helped Omega Pharma-Quick Step to the team time-trial title.

Britain’s Wiggins finished runner-up, 46.09 seconds behind Martin. The 2012 Tour de France champion used a late charge to overtake four-time champion Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland, who was third.

Wiggins, 33, pulled out of the Giro d’Italia earlier this year and missed the Tour de France with a knee injury. He came back to win the Tour of Britain three days ago.

Vasil Kiryienka of Belarus was fourth and Taylor Phinney was the top American, finishing more than two minutes back of Martin in fifth.
