World Road Championships 2011 – Day 3; Mens’ TT


‘Time trials are boring!’ say the road men. But run it through the middle of one of Europe’s great cities, with the best ‘chrono men’ on the planet jousting for a rainbow jersey through dense crowds and it’s far from boring – spectacular! We got to the World Road Championships 2011 course early to see what we could see.

The teams were set up in a long tent in one of the side streets, the riders warming up on rollers, the mechanics making the last-minute adjustments – in the case of the Slovaks, this involved hack sawing the nose off the saddle and taping it up.
