Villumsen ultimately set the fastest time of of 40:29 along today’s 30 kilometer course, to beat Netherlands’ Anna van der Breggen by two and a half seconds.

Meanwhile, the German defending champion, Lisa Brennauer, finished with Australia’s Katrin Garfoot fourth.

The 42-year-old American Kristin Armstrong, who came out of retirement earlier this year, went out second and led for almost three hours before slipping down to fifth.

It was Villumsen who first beat Armstrong’s time as she claimed victory at an event in which she has won two silver and three bronze medals in the past five years.

“I can’t believe it,” she said. “I came with a big motivation and had the best team behind me. It’s an incredible feeling.”

“Everything played out my way.”
