Hamish finished 39th in the end, 3m33s down on Dumoulin.
That puts the UK TT scene in context... although Michael Hutchinson did beat Froome at the 2010 Commonweath games in Delhi. But that was before Froome underwent his 'change'.


In fairness to Hamish it turns out he flatted his front tyre on lap 1 so must have had a bike or wheel change.

Meanwhile, those times up the last climb:

Brian Cookson is gone as UCI president!

BEST NEWS EVER! :thumbup:



Lets see how (in)effective Lappartient is, shall we?

System not figurehead thats the problem.

But you've never liked the BC/Sky thing have you? To paraphrase Basil Fawlty, " i think i may have mentioned it once, but think i got away with it"...


Not sure if Lappartient would be better. Might as well be a lapdog from the ASO, and they already got more power then is good for them.
But Cookson wasn't good either. Don't know if it's the bureaucracy or the big amount of lobbys inside federations, but president's of sport federations seem to be destined to disappoint or fall for corruption.

Hamish Bond: 496W for 10:56 :unbelievable:

Cookson was a good step up from Hein and his lap dog Pat. Good luck to Lappardient.

Italian journalists and even ex Movistar Malori were criticizing the ITT route due to the climb beind too hard and the pure time trialist having already little chances during the year, but once in a while it's a good change and it created a good show with the fans along the route.

And at the end of the day it'd be hard to argue that the best TTer in the world right now didn't win the stripes!

Kind of weird now that Wiggins & Cancellara are gone and Martin's powers seemingly on the decline. Dumoulin, Roglic, Froome.. None of these guys stood a chance even three years ago.

Dumoulin is 26, Roglic is 27 and Martin/Froome are 32. Three years ago, Dumoulin did pretty well.

Three years ago Roglic was in his second year as a Pro riding for a Continental team and Tom Dumoulin won bronze at the Worlds and beat Cancellara at the Eneco Tour ITT. Five years ago Chris Froome won bronze at the Olympic ITT.

I also believe Wiggins him self called Dumoulin a future champion.

I guess I was more making a generational comparison, it's still early for Dumoulin and Roglic but it's hard to imagine them being ITT All Timers like Wiggins/Cancellara (prime vs. prime). About Froome... so what? Yes he has a very strong TT in comparison to the current field (especially for a GC guy) but head to head he has never come close to Wiggins except the one time at the Vuelta.

Not sure about single ring for ProTour-level road.

Here's another story on Aqua Blue's new bike.

Is Wiggins really a ITT all timer with only 1 WC win and an Olympic gold? He was a great TT'er but I put Cancellara or Tony Martin above him.

In terms of ITT accomplishments they're for sure above him but historically I think with 1 rainbow jersey+1 olympic gold combined with total amount of career ITT victories and course records Wiggins is somewhere up there too
