Tom Dumoulin is crowned world time trial champion on the super exciting TT course. Little I knew how exciting a TT could be, thrown in super tough Mount Floyen and sprinkled with overly enthusiastic fans... it was one to remember. The choice for all 63 riders beforehand was to stick with their TT bikes up Mount Floyen or change to a conventional one at the bottom before the climb. King Tom decided not to change and rode past the red carpet change area.
"I was doubting for a long time actually. But I took the decision not to risk it. It was the right one, I think."
- Tom Dumoulin
Now, will uphill TT's be the next big thing? I'm hoping so.
Red Carpet treatment...
Let's hope the UCI gets this straightened out.
