It is indeed Winnats, and full marks to Fetch for reading the sign behind it. It could be a new prague..

The Mussile
Ganna doesn't like twisty courses apparently?

Ganna is very much a steady state time triallist and is relatively big compared to many of the others. Course that require lots of slowing and accelerating aren't really his forte. Thats without the issue that TTs are being diminished at World Tour level and there aren't really many specialist TT riders left as to get contracts they need other skills which opens up the discipline to more surprise wins.

The Mussile: Ganna really made his name as a bonkersly good pursuiter, so that makes sense.

It's worth noting that the two British juniors who won yesterday had a background in CX at a fairly high level (and still does in the case of Zoe), hinting that a big part on that course was the ability to carry speed through the technical stuff and punch out of it.

Given that it shares quite a bit with the road race course, may be something taken note of.

Outside of the World Champs and national titles, are there any TTs at "elite" level these days? All the big names focus on the major 1 day races, the 1 week tours and the GTs so presumably get their "fix" of TT through the prologues, GT TTs plus the national / international champs. Must be hard to fit in events of any significance beyond that.

Chapeau Zoe Backstedt & Josh Tarling. Zoe absolutely demolished the opposition!
