World champion Tony Martin underlined his status as the No 1 time-triallist in cycling by winning the Chrono des Nations in France for the third year in a row.

The 28-year-old Omega Pharma - Quick-Step rider stopped the clock on a 57km course starting and finishing in Herbiers in a time of 1hr 10min 48sec.

Sweden's Gustav Larsson (IAM Cycling) was 14 seconds slower in second place, with Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma - Quick-Step) 45 seconds back in third.

Marco Pinotti (BMC), the veteran Italian who was racing for the final time before retirement, finished fourth, one minute down on the imperious Martin.
