BRUGGE, Belgium (AP) — Ellen van Dijk of the Netherlands has won the women’s time trial at the road cycling world championships to claim a second title in the discipline. The rider perfectly paced her effort on the flat 30.3-kilometer course in the Flanders region of Belgium to beat Marlen Reusser of Switzerland by 10.29 seconds. Reusser led at both intermediate checks but faded over the last 10 kilometers. Olympic champion Annemiek van Vleuten was third, 24 seconds off the pace.
