  • She's simultaneously the youngest (22 years of age) and most dominant winner (92 seconds ahead of AvdB!) of that event. Positively Dygertesque.

    BTW, with the top 10 ranked nations getting a second Olympic ITT place it appears that Juliette Labous (FRA, 15th rider today) pipped Alice Barnes (GBR, 16th rider today) by a solitary hundredth. Cruelly fine margin, that.

    Just to mention that Mikkel Berg is the real deal. 3rd u23 TT WC in a row, he's 21 so could ride it next year (though he's gone to UAE so will probably ride the elite edition).

    Oh and 3 Danes in the top ten u23. Told you the vikings were coming.
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    The Vikings are coming!

    Yeah, well, good day for longboats, wasn't it?

    Looked proper grim out there today, I’m glad I chose to go tomorrow instead! Just need to work out where to watch. Anybody know when the start list for the men’s is likely to be released?

    This is latest I believe.

    If that's broken, it's on the UCI site under Ind. Time Trial.

    Nobody seems to have much to say about the most dominant WC TT display today since Candelabra in his prime... it was akin to some of the greatest rides of the last 20 years.

    Cheers, I was expecting to find it on worlds.yorkshire.com!

    Sounds phenomenal, its on my watch list for the morning.

    Who? :P

    When Dygert Owen caught Brennauer for a minute before the intermediate check it was clear then she was flying or the German was having a bad day. Actually took the BBC commentators a while to realise who was caught at the time!

    Says an awful lot that even with 90-second gaps (was that the original plan before the rain relays?), AvdB (yet another ITT silver!) would have been caught in that scenario.

    You going to Harrogate or out on the road?

    I've managed to move some meetings around and take the afternoon off, so will be getting the train over to Harrogate as early as is decent to do so. Not sure yet where I'll head to - will be interesting to see if the fan area has dried up enough to open back up, but wouldn't watch it there as I'd rather see the riders in the flesh - seems silly to go that far and watch a screen.

    I'm not a fan of that team but they seem to have a really good policy of recruiting talented youngsters. Bjerg, Pogacar, Ardila and Philipsen all have the potential to be top, top riders. Covi and McNulty are both potentially pretty handy too. All of them 21 or younger.
    Oh and 3 Danes in the top ten u23. Told you the vikings were coming.
    Would almost certainly have been four if Price-Pejtersen (who has beaten Bjerg multiple times this year) hadn't crashed in the wet.

    Edit: Berg or Bjerg?

    I’m torn at the moment between going out to Northallerton and Masham or heading into Harrogate. I think they’ll have a screen or two viewable from the course in Harrogate, they had at least one on Sunday.

    I'm toying with the idea of going up to Harrogate to watch - hadn't planned as I coach a Sunday football team but we don't now have a match and the forecast here is for heavy rain which rather puts me off my usual planB of cycling.

    Anyone got any tips on the best places to watch the racing ?

    I've no idea really. We were planning to do a ~70km ride in the morning taking in the Lofthouse climb from the womens race and then into Harrogate in pretty good time for the finishing circuits. I assume the fan zone will have multiple screens and that there will probably be a few screens viewable from the circuit.

    Dennis with the big chat putting himself as favourite for today - on his debadged, non-issue BMC, which he's presumably paid for himself.

    Bookies have him more or less neck and neck with Roglic, with Evenepoel not too far off, odds wise.

    The odds drop off very quickly after that, with Campenaerts and Asgreen.

    Dry out there today. That Swiss kit looking good. 54km - on a tt bike!! Glad it's not me

    Sorry if it's been covered, but why no Thomas? Is he doing the RR?

    I find myself liking him less and less.

    Do your talking on the bike - especially after that bullshit at the TDF.

    Rohan Dennis has clocked 18:58 at the first time check, 19 seconds up on Evenepoel and 20 ahead of Victor Campenaerts

    Would like to have it said that this is the proper length a TT should be.

  • Did you see Remco pulling his sock up the moment he left the start? No UCI sock-height officials can get a tape measure to him at 110 RPM.

    Campenaerts down. And up again but ouch.
