Elite Men's Individual Time Trial Championships reports

We posted the report from winner Rohan Dennis' BMC team with the results.

Here's what silver medalist Tom Dumoulin's Team Sunweb posted:

Tom Dumoulin set out to defend his world title at the world championships in Innsbruck, Austria today. Hitting the first time check eight seconds down, the parcours took their toll as he clocked in one minute down at the second check at the top of the climb. He continued to power his way through the course to limit his losses, giving all he could to fight for the title. He crossed the line with a final time of 1:04:23.66, a time quick enough to secure the silver medal.

Tom said: “Today didn’t go well and I was some way off my top level. It didn’t go smoothly and my body cramped. I wanted it really bad, but more was simply not possible today. It’s disappointing that I couldn’t reach my top level.”

2019 Yorkshire World Road Championships routes and schedule announced

The organizer sent me this release:

The full routes and race schedule for the Yorkshire 2019 UCI Road World Championships have been officially unveiled in Innsbruck (Austria).
