Chris Froome on world championship road race flop

Great Britain's Chris Froome says there are "no excuses" for the "big disappointment" of failing to finish the World Championships road race.

The Tour de France winner says Britain must go "back to the drawing board" after all members of their eight-man team dropped out of a rain-soaked race in Florence well before the end.

Rui Costa beat Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez in a sprint finish to become the first Portuguese world champion.
