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

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

Who does everyone think for the Men's ITT then?


I think Rohan Dennis.... or maybe Primoz? (spelling?)


I think Dumoulin will send it!

dude !.. horrible open wound. I would have stopped and seek medical attention for sure. I'd want to close that shit up as fast as possible to risk further infection.. etc etc.

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.

EBH will be on an S5 with clip-ons apparently. Seems like a good solution after watching this madness so far. The riders that don't enter the red carpet can just power up the incline. If you stop to change bikes, you lose all momentum that you carried through the corner into the start of the hill. They must surely lose more than ten seconds all included if they change bikes?

On the stream they said that no running pushing is allowed on bike swap, or did I just misshear it.
Most seem to go, so far, with TT bike. The loss of momentum and the time, nice to see what top riders do before the climb.

I think Dumoulin won't swap bikes. He didn't swap bikes on last years TDF and that was a dedicated climbing ITT. Also Froome didn't swap bikes and he won that TT infront of Dumoulin but he already said what he will do.

Bodnar won't change too. Barta just made a fast change though, didn't seem to lose more than a couple seconds.

so.... what's the ruling on mechanicals and what spare bike to bring?

what if....... your team car brought your road bike atop.

you pretend to have a mechanical before the carpet , make some faces at the camera to convince the officials, then your mechanic can give you a bigger push and you can choice to change on a flat terrain rather than on a hill losing momentum.

HRMMMMM

you can only use a bike carried by a support/team vehicle, while the red carpet allows for some preparation, although clipping in seems to be the ultimate issue (even for the fastest men in the world :wink:)

interesting - Oliveira, despite a lousy bike swap, gained time over Moscon who remained on his TT rig
