UCI World Championships: Mens Elite ITT
Dumoulin makes it Double Dutch with elite Individual Time Trial win in Bergen.
Tom Dumoulin (Netherlands/Sunweb) matched Annemiek van Vleuten victory in the women's race to give Holland a one-two in the elite time trial.
Fresh from a win in the Men's Tema Trial with Sunweb on Sunday he took 57" out of second place Slovenian Primoz Roglic, with Chris Froome rounding out the podium 1'21" further back.
“I can’t believe it, I had such a good day, I thought my power meter was off because it was so high,” Dumoulin said afterwards after he had completed the 31 kilometre course.
“Doing the double [with team time trial gold] is amazing, Sunday was amazing but today [Wednesday] maybe less surprising. I was still one of the favourites, which made it even more difficult to stay calm. But I did that and I was on a good day.”
Wow. Just wow... pic.twitter.com/jNWJRsnLu0— Tom Dumoulin (@tom_dumoulin) September 20, 2017
