With the road races completed, attention turns to the individual time trial events at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Wednesday, August 10.

A total of 40 places are available in the men's time trial, with a maximum of two places awarded to the top qualifying nations.

The start list, naturally, reads like a who's who of time trialling with all of the top names present: Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland), Tony Martin (Germany), Tom Dumoulin (Netherlands), Chris Froome (Great Britain), Jonathan Castroviejo (Spain), Taylor Phinney (USA) and world champion Vasil Kiryienka (Belarus) among them.

With Richie Porte (Australia) and Vincenzo Nibali (Italy) withdrawn due to injuries sustained in the road race, British rider Geraint Thomas was handed one of the re-allocated empty places and will join Froome representing GB. Dan Craven (Namibia) was also given a place, and will be first man off - on his road bike.

London 2012 champion Bradley Wiggins is absent, having switched focus to the team pursuit on the track. Martin took silver in 2012, with Froome claiming bronze.
