World Championships week is now well underway. At the weekend Velocio-SRAM won a 4th consecutive Women’s Team Time Trial while BMC also defended their title to give Taylor Phinney victory at his ‘home’ championships 18 months after a career threatening leg injury. This was followed by upsets in the Individual Time Trials with Linda Villimsen claiming the […]
