Tom Dumoulin dominates World Championship time trial, Chris Froome takes bronze

Tom Dumoulin dominates World Championship time trial, Chris Froome takes bronze

Froome, who earlier this month backed up his fourth Tour de France victory with his first Vuelta a Espana win, said he had "no regrets" and "no excuses", declaring himself more than satisfied at the end of what he described as "unforgettable season".

Froome, who 10 days ago completed a Tour-Vuelta double, seemed a little off the pace at the beginning.

The Dutchman, victor of the Giro d'Italia in May and favourite for today's race, had a 34-second advantage over Froome at the third time check, which came after 16.1 kilometres, by which time heavy rain was falling on the course.

"I left it all out on the road, and I'm happy enough with how today went", he said.

He was one of the fastest men up it and managed to snare third place, adding to his bronze medals in the time-trial at the last two Olympic Games.

"I can't believe it, wow, it's really wonderful".

"I thought my power meter was off the number was so high!" I felt really, really good.

Despite the late rain, Dumoulin was able to weather the storm and take the title thanks to a strong ride across the whole course, nearly catching Chris Froome.

"I was doubting for a long time about the bike change". Today was less surprising, I think I was one of the favourites but then it's even more hard to make it and stay calm.

The 26-year-old is enjoying the best year of his career having also won May's Giro d'Italia, his first Grand Tour success.

From there he gobbled up time on all those ahead of him, except Dumoulin who came close to catching him despite starting 90 seconds afterwards. But Dumoulin saved some time by staying on his aerodynamic TT bike, though he was so much stronger on the rest of the course that it hardly mattered.

"Coming into the last kilometre I was obviously going full gas but I could hear the crowd cheering behind me", said Froome. "He [Dumoulin] has had a fantastic season, winning the Giro and then focusing on this world title". Christmas was a big roast, Yorkshire puddings, our gran would cook up a storm."Froome is by far Britain's most successful ever road cyclist, yet his popularity pails in comparison to that of the country's first - and only other - Tour victor, Bradley Wiggins".
