So the UCI agreed? :slow

(I can't seem to find the original Tweet within the UCI timeline, so maybe someone was advised to take it down?)

    looks like weather will be pretty crappy today, heavy rain at times, and a strong headwind. At least it should be more or less equally bad for everyone

    Valter was very, very lucky in his own crash.

    I never imagined that today's races would've held such intrigue. The earlier Men's U23 race already feels like a week ago!

    The Women's Elite race began after a 40 minute rain delay, and I found myself barely paying attention as they tackled the wet road under what appeared to be cloudy but dry skies. But then...


    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176512262900727809

    Wow!  :cool
    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176516813187952640

    She just kept passing rider, after rider, after rider until she could barely dismount from her bike at the finish, looking as though she'd just completed an Hour Record.
    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176525104479645697

    And yes, it would be enough. By a record margin.

    As it turns out, 22-year-old *usa Chloe Dygert is half the age of 44-year-old (I'm good with maths!) 4th place (and previous champion in 2008 & 2016) *usa Amber Neban.

    Another view of the mayhem from the Men's U23...

    Some added historical perspective from the Elite Women...

    Chloé Dygert Owen becomes youngest world time trial champion by record margin

    Quote
    Dygert Owen, a 22-year-old Olympic track silver medalist in the team pursuit, became the youngest man or woman to win a world title in the road time trial. She also won by the largest male or female margin in history, according to ProCyclingStats.com.

    “Definitely really surprising,” Dygert Owen said on Eurosport. “I didn’t race with a power meter today, and I think that really helped not restricting myself, just kind of going as fast as I could the entire time and not really have anything to gauge it off of. Just making sure I hurt more than everybody else.”

    Dygert Owen, coming back from a May 2018 road crash and concussion, aims to make the Olympic team on both the track and the road. She is coached by Kristin Armstrong, the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Olympic time trial champion.

    “I’m very injury-prone, so we have to take things very slow and really salvage everything,” said Dygert Owen, who has dealt with a torn hip labrum and bulging disk in her back. “I want to race as long as Kristin Armstrong did [until she was 43].”

    Before the head injury, Dygert Owen swept 2017 and 2018 World titles on the track in the individual and team pursuits. She is the world-record holder in the individual pursuit, which is not an Olympic event.

    She also swept individual 2015 World junior titles in the road race and time trial before taking her first pedals on a track bike. She became a competitive road cyclist in 2013 and missed most of 2014 after tearing an ACL playing basketball that January.

    star ratings for today:

    *be Het Nieuwsblad
    :*:*:*:*:* Roglic
    :*:*:*:* Campenaerts, Dennis
    :*:*:* Evenepoel, Asgreen, Küng
    :*:* Lampaert, Affini, Durbridge, Castroviejo
    :* Martin, Ganna, Oliveira, van Emden, Jungels

    I'm really not sure what to think. #rainbow Dennis is back on the BMC bike, but hasn't raced for ages, same as Campenaerts - while Roglic on the other hand cancelled Sunday's TTT the day before, because he was "too tired"... may we really get to see a 19 year old World Champion in the end?! :yum

    The top 10 nations get an (additional) spot for the Olympics ITT by the way, so also the "minor" placings will be of interest

    I hadn't even realized that he didn't race in the TTT. Saving himself for a full-on effort today?

    It's all the rage, isn't it? Old men like Bernal and Pogačar will need to make room in the peloton for the next generation.  :P

    Triple Bjerg! *dk #rainbow #rainbow #rainbow :win

    Chloe Dygert-Owen: Just :o :pray

    Rohan Dennis: Good on him. Winning it once is something - winning it twice confirms you're really good.


    A common streak among these three: They all have that rare ability of setting themselves up perfectly for that one day that matters.

    Not all that much to report on from today, compared with the drama and excitement of the previous day's iTTs.

    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176876767304462337

    The big takeaway would seem to be Remco's accomplishment.  :cool
    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176880217941565445


    The one surprise for me was this moment
    https://twitter.com/UCI_cycling/status/1176869133679497218

    Then it got a bit crowded at the finish line
    (Maybe Rogla was just racing for pride at that point? Give the man some room! Jeez. There was more to this in the previous meters.)

    They should have contracted Pro Cycling Trumps for graphics like these. This just looks like a (poor) copy.

    Phew that's all the TT rubbish out of the way. On to the real meat and potatoes now.

    Junior Men's RR





    I'm not too sure why they don't have both junior races on the same day.

    Blimey, Evenepoel, at 19.

    Seems like the future is having Poel in your name, unless you’re W’out Poels.

    Obviously that's to allow more time for the inevitable Quinn Simmons celebration!  :P

    there's still a chance for Switzerland to lose the additional spot though, because there must be at least two nations from every continent participating in the event (and these spots are kaken away from those who have two)

    At the moment only one from Asia would qualify via the World Ranking (but I'm not sure what happens with Japan - I guess they will be around anyway?!)

    I have to say it’s great to see an incredible TTer winning in Dennis, and a nipper absolutely smashing it. The boy has a great future, just wow.
