Today’s coarse is absolutely flat says Davd Millar, “no hills” he says briefly and succinctly. Millar was the second rider to start the trial early this morning at 10h15 AM CET | 4:15 AM EDT. When the first rider, Bert Grabsch, started his trial it was dead calm.

Local forecasters are calling for an increasing breeze as the day progresses.

In this time trial the first 11 riders will leave the start gate individually in intervals of one minute. The next 139 riders will likewise leave the start gate individually, but separated by 2 minutes. The last 20 riders – the first 20 in the overall General Classification – will strike out separated by 3 minutes each.
