The 2018 Commonwealth Games cycling events continued on Tuesday with the men’s and women’s individual time trials on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Riders tackled a twisting course starting and finishing on Currumbin Beachfront, with the men’s route totalling 37.8 kilometres and the women’s measuring 24.5km.

After their success on the track, host nation Australia is hoping for more gold medals in the test against the clock.

The Aussies have a number of strong riders in attendance, but should see a challenge from New Zealand, England and Scotland.
