2014 UCI Road World Championships: Men’s ITT Photo Gallery

Sir Bradley Wiggins wrote another chapter in a glittering cycling career with victory in the men?s world time trial championship. The Brit put in a dominant performance across the 47.1-kilometre course in Ponferrada, northern Spain, to win gold by 26 seconds and seal one of the biggest honours of his storied career. Wiggins?s time of 56 minutes and 25 seconds saw the Team Sky rider capture the coveted rainbow jersey, adding to his Olympic title on the road in 2012, after fending off nearest rival Tony Martin. Overturning a deficit of four seconds at the opening intermediate split, a controlled ride saw Wiggins gradually put time into his competition, extending his margin over a gruelling final climb to finish as a resounding winner. Completing the course in a speed of 50.1km/h, Wiggins joined Martin (Germany) and Tom Dumoulin (Holland) on the podium. Full Report & Highlights Images copyright Bart Hazen
