Virginia is playing host to the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, and Sunday September 20 saw the men’s and women’s team time trial events.
Velocio-SRAM were successful in a tightly fought women’s event whilst BMC defended their title by seeing off Etixx – Quick-Step in second and Movistar in third.
Interestingly, they all held the ‘Battlefield Rd. (North 3/3)’ segment KOM at the point of upload, with Terpstra holding it coming away from the event.
Strava is becoming increasingly popular with pros as more and more upload their rides to the sharing site. Some teams appear to have a blanket ban on the sharing of training files but many are freer with their activities and are happy to give fans an insight into their training and racing.
Kwiatkowski’s effort appears to be the most popular with more than 2300 people giving him Kudos compared to Terpstra’s 1100 and Dowsett’s 900.
