Bjerg makes it three in a row – UCI U23’s Men’s Individual Time Trail

Mikkel Bjerg of Denmark defied the weather to win the Men’s Under-23 World Individual Time Trial Championships in Harrogate with a time of 40 minutes 20.42 seconds, 26 seconds ahead of his nearest rivals, Ian Garrison of the USA and Brandon McNulty of USA less than two seconds behind Garrison.

Bjerg was the undisputed favourite going in to today’s race, having won the World Championship title for the past two years. His Danish teammate, Price-Pejtersen, as European Champion, was one of the only riders who had beaten Bjerg this year, but a crash early on meant that the rivalry would have to be put on hold for another day.

 

 

 

Today was really, really crazy and they were very difficult conditions out there today. I was told to hold my handlebars tight, keep looking ahead of me, and go full gas through the water. I didn’t have any slips or slides so I am over the moon to have pulled off this third victory.

UCI Under 23's Individual Time Trial World Champion, Team Denmark

Their teammate, Morten Hulgaard, was the first to start and his time of 41:16.49 was good enough to keep him on the podium for quite some time, and he eventually finished in 6th place.

The event saw rain of epic proportions descending onto the course, with riders later off in the starting order having to navigate roads that were flooded in places, which no doubt had an effect on the final standings. But that perhaps seals Bjerg’s place in the history books, as his third title came in spite of the conditions.

Chapeau to all riders who competed today in atrocious conditions.

I can’t thank the crowds and communities enough for still coming out in their droves to support the riders on the roadside. Today’s been a real challenge because of the weather but everyone pulled together including the emergency services, the councils, highways agencies, and of course, our Yorkshire Team volunteers who’ve all worked their socks off to keep the racing going.

Ripon looked fantastic today, as did all the communities along the route. A huge thank you once again to everyone and hopefully we’ll have drier weather to come!

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.
