Champion David Stone relishes win

I made my move, but the Italian (Farroni) stayed with me. It was so hard.

It makes it better to win today because it was so disappointing not winning in the time-trial.

Compared to Beijing, the competition was so much better, it's good. It pushes me. It makes it a much better sport.

The 31-year-old relinquished his time-trial title on Wednesday and was disappointed with bronze.
