Patrick Bevin, from New Zealand, is another very strong TT performer and a person to watch out for. His time at the first split is 19 "# 33", one second slower than Van Emden.
Evenepoel sails against the wind on the left turn over the bridge. He got into it quite narrowly, and as a result he didn't have much way to work when he was at the top.
Wearing the skin color of the German national championand riding a Bianchi bike, Tony Martin looks very good approaching the first check. It's a very open race. Several riders scream – at the moment Evenepoel is the fastest on the road.

One of the favorites for today, and after winning Vuelta clearly rider in shape. But will fatigue be a factor?
According to knowledgeable peopleTitle defender Rohan Dennis will ride a BMC today. He is a cyclist from Merida Bahrain, but he expressed dissatisfaction with the team's equipment. Because he represents Australia, he is not required to use Merida motorcycles from his normal Pro WorldTour team. From a psychological point of view, this can make a big difference to Dennis, as well as the real difference if he thinks BMC bikes are more suited to his needs.
Dunbar is done: 01:09:52. Ganna is still the fastest. The weather still looks fair.
Alex Dowsett, one of home hopes, passed the first inspection in 19 & # 39; 35 ".

Chris Boardman, commenting on the BBC: "This is a terrible event. It's about suffering from the word him – that's what it's about. It's about who can hurt the most. "
Alex Dowsett from Great Britain begins, to suit the mood. Dowsett is one of the few riders who won the Grand Tour stage. He won the stage at Giro d & # 39; Italia in 2013, beating no one but Bradley Wiggins at that time.
There is a very decent crowd in Northallerton, at the start, and every rider is cheered on at the starting ramp. It is primarily about the pace for these riders – to maintain the highest possible average speed, while leaving enough fuel in the tank for a distance of 54 km. Lampert is approaching the first inspection. Meanwhile Pierre Latour from France took second place the first time. He arrived there exactly in 20 & # 39; 00. "

The conditions were shocking yesterday. Here's a video showing exactly how bad it is:
Meanwhile, Lutsenko is on the right track in these characteristic Kazakh colors: turquoise and yellow. The rain stops. Riders who are not yet moving – especially the main rivals – will pray that they will not have to fight the rain.
Eddie Dunbar from Ireland passes his first exam in 20 "and is the fastest at the moment. Navardauskas is the second fastest, but it has over 90 seconds down. This shows that we will see very large intervals between the slowest and fastest riders in the early part of the route.

John Archibald from Great Britain is on the right track. His compatriot Alex Dowsett will hope for a positive result today. Meanwhile, Jan Tratnik (Slovenia) has just set off …
Alexei Lutsenko (Kazakhstan) will depart at 13.48. The Astana Pro Team is a contender for the men's road race and most likely treats today's event as an improvement before the Sunday showdown.
As always in time trial, most of the stronger riders and real rivals will come out last. The wind is light, between 5 and 10 km / h, for which competitors will be grateful. These guys definitely have a better day than yesterday's riders.
Eddie Dunbar from Team INEOS rolls off the starting ramp. I will bring you time to check Navardauskas when it exceeds 17 km.
Weather conditions they look much, much better than yesterday. The roads have dried up and although this is far from the famous sun-drenched Grand Départ in Yorkshire in 2014, there are patches of bright sky between the clouds, if not actual sunlight.
Start the race!
You're welcome: Navardauskas rolls down the ramp at Northallerton. The "race of truth" has begun.
Master Rohan Dennis he has not raced since leaving the Tour de France with Team Bahrain Merida. He apparently wasn't satisfied with the equipment in his new team after signing a contract with the now defunct BMC Racing Team for this season. The problem was wheels and overalls. Given his lack of recent races, it's difficult to say how it will go today. Certainly his rivals can test him.
Who are the other riders paying attention to today? Remco Evenepoel there is certainly one. A 19-year-old Belgian child prodigy began his professional career after signing a contract with Deceuninck – Quick Step. The most striking result was the victory in Clásica San Sebastián, a prestigious one-day race.
Stefan Küng, from Switzerland, is one of the most powerful riders in the peloton and already has the nine best 10 places in ITT this season.
Yves Lampaert can also be watched. It generates great power for a relatively small rider, and this up and down course may suit him well.
We are less than 20 minutes from the beginning of today's race. Lithuanian Navardauskas, the first player to start today, has an interesting history. He was the driver who replaced David Millar on the Tour de France 2014, after Garmin-Sharp's managers decided that Millar did not have the necessary form. Litwin won stage 19 with a brilliant solo attack, announcing himself on the global stage and justifying his choice. Then he signed a contract with the Bahrain Merida team, where his heart condition prevented him from racing for a year in 2017. Last season, the 31-year-old moved to Delko-Marseille Provence. He won the title of national road race in Lithuania in June. It will be interesting to see how it goes today.
UCI video this wet and wild day yesterday:
There was a lot of criticism from cyclists targeted at UCI yesterday. Some riders claimed that races should be canceled – especially men under 23 years old in the morning, when riders had to ride the roads or, in some cases, into huge pools of standing water. Fortunately, we should avoid such controversy today, even if the conditions in distant Yorkshire are not perfect.
In individual women's time trial yesterday Chloe Dygert Owen from the US produced something that, according to some, was almost a perfect time trial, beating her closest rival Anna Van der Breggen by 1 & # 39; 32 ". Join the action thanks to the William Fotheringham report:
Today's course is 54 km long, starting with Northallerton and ending with Harrogate.
Time points are located after 17 km and 38 km. Between these time points there are two significant ramps along the route: Gate Bridge Road (1.1 km, 4.9% average gradient) and 0.7 km second climb (7% average gradient).
The route starts in a southwest direction from Northallerton. When the road runs towards Masham, there is a short, steep ramp followed by a fast and flat stretch leading to Risplith. The trail then waves up to Harrogate, including these two climbs.
The way each rider walks with his effort will be critical to the final result. Go too fast and fast for such a long and demanding course, and you will stay soon at the end. Everything up and down on the route means that it should fit lighter riders like Dennis and Roglic.
Ramunas Navardauskas from Lithuania will be the first runner to leave the starting ramp at 13.18 BST.
Here's what the podium looked like last year. Campanaerts, the current hour record holder, will again fight against Dennis, but Dutchman Dumoulin is absent and is not expected to return to the races this season. In May, Giro d & # 39; Italia suffered a severe knee injury, as a result of which he left the Tour de France.
Greetings and welcome to the live coverage of the individual men's time trial at the 2019 World Road Cycling Championships. In the afternoon in Yorkshire, Australian Rohan Dennis will defend the world title he won in Innsbruck last year. It is a 54 km route with two significant climbs, which the fastest cyclists will cover in about an hour. Yes, it means that they will exceed 50 km / h on average, which is an amazing speed.
There are several notable absentees – among them Tom Dumoulin, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas. But Slovenian Vuelta, Spanish champion España Primoz Roglic, Victor Campanaerts from Belgium and "Der Panzerwagen" Tony Martin are among the players with a realistic chance of stopping Dennis in maintaining rainbow stripes.
Fortunately, the weather looks much better today than yesterday. Cloudy but rain is to be expected. The course approximation is approaching. Here's what competitors faced in sunny Yorkshire yesterday:
