The season for a changing of the guard at national champion level is upon us, and a host of new national jersey wearers have already been crowned.

In Great Britain, Alice Barnes (Canyon-SRAM) stormed to the time trial win and also took the road race from a breakaway. In the men's, Alex Dowsett (Katusha-Alpecin) took a record-equalling sixth time trial title, while Ben Swift (Ineos) won the road race.

Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) added the Spanish national road race champs to his world road race title and Ineos' Jonathan Castroviejo won the time trial.

World time trial champion Annemiek van Vleuten also claimed her fourth national title in the Dutch women's race against the clock, beating Ellen van Dijk by over a minute and a half. Jos van Emden (Jumbo-Visma) won the men's time trial.

Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) won the Dutch road race as Jos van Emden (Jumbo-Visma) took the time trial.

Warren Barguil (Arkéa-Samsic) took the French road race title, emotion pouring out as he crossed the finish line, and Benjamin Thomas (Groupama-FDJ) won the time trial.

Ineos' Filippo Ganna won the Italian time trialahead of Alberto Bettiol (EF Education First) and Alessandro De Marchi (CCC) as Davide Formolo (Bora-Hansgrohe) won the road race ahead of Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) and Bettiol.

Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) beat defending Belgian time trial champion champion Yves Lampaert and his Deceuninck - Quick-Step team-mate Remco Evenepoel. Tim Merlier (Corendon-Circus) was the surprise winner of the road race, beating Timothy Dupont Wanty-Groupe Gobert and Wout Van Aert.

Daryl Impey dominated the South African championships, picking up both the road race and time trial titles once again as Ashleign Moolman (CCC Liv) won the women's road race and Liezel Jordaan took the time trial.

Georgia Williams (Mitchelton-Scott) defended her New Zealand women's time trial title while Georgia Catterick (Mike Greer Homes) was victorious in the road race.

2017 National Round Up

Lizzie Deignan (Boels-Dolmans) took her fourth British national road race title in seven years as she launched a perfectly-timed solo effort to win the women’s road race on the Isle of Man.

Steve Cummings (Dimension Data) won the men’s road race with a stunning solo victory, taking a nationals double after denying Alex Dowsett (Movistar) what would have been a record-equalling sixth British time trial title, taking victory by just eight seconds on the Isle of Man in his first race since April.

The women’s event also saw an unexpected result as Hayley Simmonds (Team WNT), looking for a third consecutive national title, finished in fourth with victory going to Clare Rose (Visit Dallas DNA Pro Cycling).

There was also a double in Ireland, where Ryan Mullen (Cannondale-Drapac) won the road race and time trial, while the women’s road race went to Lydia Boylan (Team WNT) and the time trial to Eileen Burns.

Elsewhere Oliver Naessen (Ag2r La Mondiale) won the Belgian road race by a tyre width ahead of Wouter Wippert (Cannondale-Drapac), while Arnaud Démare (FDJ) beat Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis)in France.

In Slovakia, Sagan won by nearly ten minutes (although it was Juraj, not Peter), while in Italy Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) won both of the women’s race as Fabio Aru (Astana) won the men’s road race and Gianni Moscon (Team Sky) the time trial.

Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) held onto the Dutch national colours for another year in incredibly hot conditions. The Giro winner took his third national time trial title by 24 seconds ahead of Stef Clement (LottoNL-Jumbo) over the 50km route in Montferland. The women’s event was won by Annemiek Van Vleuten (Orica-Scott).

Polish all rounder Michal Kwiatkowski showed he can still time trial with the best of them, regaining his Polish national time title beating Marcin Bialoblocki (CCC Sprandi Polkowice) by 1-15 over 39.6km. Kwiatkowski last won the title in 2014 besting four time winner Maciej Bodnar (Bora-Hansgrohe).

Bob Jungels (Quick-Step Floors) missed out on retaining his Luxembourg national time trial jersey for the third year in a row after losing to Jean-Pierre Drucker (BMC Racing) by just six seconds over the short 18.7km route in Remerschen. However he made amends a few days later with victory in the road race. Christine Majerus took both of the women’s titles.
