Dennis proves to be too strong for his rivals – Men’s Elite Individual Time Trial

Aussie Rohan Dennis takes the Elite Men’s Individual Time Trial Championship for the second year in a row, with a winning margin of over a minute from his nearest rivals, Remoc Evenepoel of Belgium and Filippo Ganna of Italy.

Dennis completed the 54km course in 1 hour, 5 minutes 5.35 seconds with Evenepoel 1 minute 8.93 seconds behind with Ganna a further 46 seconds in arrears.

The course started in Northallerton and, although the weather was much better than the previous day, the event would see its fair share of incidents, with riders hitting the deck and one of the pre-race favourites, Belgian Victor Campenaerts, suffering a snapped chain out on the course.

GB’s John Archibald was the early leader, with teammate Alex Dowsett also sitting in the hot seat for a very short while before Ganna took the lead, coming in less than a minute after Dowsett.

Dennis admitted later that he had initially been in a negative place after his early exit from the Tour de France, but the power of the support he received from his family and his coach helped him to refocus and get back on track.

I did a lot of work to get mentally prepared for today and I was confident in my ability. Once I got out there I was able to let my legs do the talking. I knew the pace I went out with [at the Championships] last year and just stuck on that. I was 20 seconds up at the first time check and knew I still had more to give and that I wasn’t going to die on the climbs. It was perfect and the course today was awesome as well. We first saw it on Saturday and instantly loved it, so whoever designed it, thanks for that!

Rohan Dennis

Men's Elite Individual Time Trial World Champion, Team Australia

On every kilometre of the route today we saw pride and passion from the fans, and that true Yorkshire spirit. Special mention to Northallerton for the way the community came together to celebrate the race. Every business had adopted a country and their window displays were brilliant. The UCI Road World Championships have never seen land art like what was on the route today either as well, and the footage of this event is taking Yorkshire global.

Peter Dodd

Commercial Director, Welcome to Yorkshire

It was a good ride and I’m happy with how I executed our plan today. The crowds out there were mad, clearly many people had taken a day off work to cheer us on and that was really good of them. It gave us an extra something. We definitely had to dig in and hearing that support gave us extra power. It really helped and I’m super grateful – this was a really cool result.

Yorkshire is the home of cycling in the UK and this has been colossal. There’ll be even bigger crowds at the weekend and it’s an honour to have been a part of it – one to tell the grandkids for sure.

Alex Dowsett

5th in Individual Time Trial, Team GB

We saw some amazing cycling and it was another cracking day for Yorkshire. The crowds in Northallerton were fantastic and they were full of support for the riders as they started. On the climbs and through the villages as well, we couldn’t have asked for any more, and Harrogate provided another great welcome.

It was a challenging course – up and down with plenty of corners – and Rohan produced an incredible display. Seeing his wife and baby there at the finish was very emotional and massive congratulations to him. Remco also deserves a mention. That performance from a 19 year old in an elite event was just amazing, and what a force for the future he will be.

Tiberi overcomes the odds to take the Junior Men’s World Time Trial title

Antonio Tiberi of Italy wins the World Championship Junior Men’s Time Trial title despite a mechanical within the first 100m which forced a bike change.

Tiberi finished the 27.6km course in 38 minutes 28.25 seconds, with Dutch rider Enzo Leunse completing the course 7.79 seconds slower, with Germany’s Marco Brenner 12.62 seconds behind Tiberi. The three riders had set off relatively early in the day and their times proved to withstand the later riders. Strong rides from the last three riders on the road (Michel Hessman of Germany, Quinn Simmons of USA and Andrea Piccolo of Italy) were not enough to knock the three fastest riders out of the hot seat. Incidentally, the last three on the road finished in 5th, 4th and 6th respectively.

Tiberi not only had the bike change to contend with, but also had to overtake a rider in front, whom he caught coming into the finish straight on the first lap. He would later say that the first incident helped him to focus, which no doubt assisted him in pushing forward and gaining those extra seconds that would result in him winning the title.

Leo Hayter and Oscar Nilsson-Julien came home in a credible 8th and 9th out of a field of 63 starters.

I knew straight away that I’d snapped my chain but luckily I was able to roll to my team car and get a bike change. I thought at that point there was no chance I would win but I refocused and was surprised to find out later in the race that I was leading. That gave me huge motivation and I could not believe it when I had won.
