Teams hit the Bergen course for recons

For the politicians, Thursday was arguably the most important day of the UCI Road World Championships with David Lappartient successfully challenging Brian Cookson for the role of UCI President.

Outside of the halls of power, the riders contesting the four road races this Friday and weekend headed out onto the Bergen circuit for a course recon. The cold and overcast weather didn't stop the various teams and riders from important race recons.

World time trial champion Tom Dumoulin was all smiles as he headed out with his Netherlands teammates, while Philippe Gilbert had time for a lighter moment as the Belgian team reconned the course.
