Bergen looks like a million dollar bike destination, but the TTT itself - o total waste of time. I get it's been designed for team sponsors but #1 most of them dont give a duck and skip it #2 having like half of the starting list comprised of local teams only dilutes the WC's image and significance.

Agree- TTT is a nothing event. Like Cycling's version of synchronised swimming.


It is such a shame that the UCI chose to upset the tradition of the World Championships being contested by nations and allowed commercial entries with the contrived Trade Team Time Trial. I suppose we can look forward to BMC and Team Sky fighting out the Trade Team Pursuit final at some future point at the UCI World Track Cycling Championships?

Of course they only did it because the W Champs are the UCI's main money maker each year and they wanted to extract more from the event.

Hamish is making waves in UK domestic time trialling but he won't beat the world tour pros, sorry. I'm seeing Dumoulin taking this one.

The bike change thing is annoying though, I would much prefer it to be disallowed.

I actually like it. It is a bit strategic and if you do it wrong you lose.

But it also makes TT less of a battle to see who is the strongest. Which I'm not fond of either.

I'm starting to like this whole TT bike swap idea

CN wrote:
The UCI have explained that the bike change must occur in a 20-metre section, on the carpet. Only three people can assist the rider: two mechanics and a coach. The rider can be given a push by the mechanic but this must end when the red carpet ends. A race official will apparently blow a whistle to indicate when the pushing has to stop

Agree- no chance of winning and there's nothing tough about it. Adrenalin would have ensured she didn't feel it until later.

I thought the red carpet was a joke but it looks like its not. Will they be stopping to sign autographs as well?

My bet is at least a few soigneurs will trip over the thing.
