Second day of the World Press Cycling Championship

 

Todays race was the ITT – Individual Time Trial. 

The stage was set in the village Egtved – situated on top of the impressive valley of the Vejle River. Even thought the landscape is undulating, formed by the last ice age, the route was relatively flat and gave some good conditions and times for the competing participants.

 

The fastest circuit and todays best time was made by Holger Koopmann from Germany, who finished the 7,5 km route in 10,03’’ with an average speed of 44,730 km/t.
