TT 11.3km, but no TT bikes, disc wheels or even barend-clipons allowed. Regular Tour bikes used with deep aero wheels.

Enve 6.7's was used by most of the field in the fast end anyway.

Still Tony Martin won by 13 seconds in 13:33 which is just faster than 50km/h average :shock:

That guy is just...well...holy crap! :unbelievable:

I'm not quite sure, but I watched the latter half of the field live and it was sort of the "hmm, that's Enve" then next rider "hmm, wtf, that's also Enve.."(and a different team) and it seemed after that I kept seing deep rims that looked exactly like those on alot of the featured riders(and those that had a bid for the top spots). It could just be an observation gone wrong, but I saw alot of em.
