Contrary to what was said last week, It’s a BIG week on the GCN Racing News Show! There’s a new presidential candidate in the house, the World Championships kick off in Innsbruck and the cyclocross world cup in Wisconsin, plus we’ve got a whole host of one day races from Italy, Belgium and France, including some dramatic cornering in the Trofeo Matteotti.

2018 marked the final year of the Team Time Trial World champs as we know them - from next year, there will be national teams competing in a men’s and women’s TTT, and the sum of those times will determine finishing position.
Fitting, then, that the winners this year were essentially the same as they were when the event was first re-introduced in 2012, Quickstep on the men’s side, and Canyon SRAM on the women’s.
Canyon SRAM caused quite the upset - and also quite the stir with those Zipp disc wheels. They haven’t won a single team time trial this season, but they were 21 seconds to the good of pre-race favourites Boels Dolmans, and a further 7 ahead of reigning champions Team Sunweb.
In the men’s, Team Sky faced not just a literal but a metaphorical uphill battle on the day as they lost Ian Stannard to a crash after just 1km, but even more disappointed were BMC Racing. They’ve made this discipline their own over the last few years but could only manage third in their final outing. Team Sunweb pushed Quickstep closest, at 19 seconds. It was a course of two halves - the first flat, with the best teams averaging over 60kph for the first 40 kilometres, before a significant climb which got many into trouble.
Now, also over in Innsbruck, on Thursday, will be the election for the president of the CPA. Never heard of them? Don’t worry, because until recently, neither had some of the riders it represents. It’s been a controversial subject over the past couple of weeks, and last week in London, we spoke to David Millar to find out why…..
