Defending champion Michael Rogers and Ben Day will represent Australia in tomorrow's elite men's time trial. The latter rode the course today and said just before doing so that he was excited by the thoughts of the test. "I am feeling really good, I am just waiting for it to happen. I am sick of waiting," he stated. "We checked out the course yesterday and are going to have another quick look now and to try and ride some of the more tricky bits at speed. You never really know how it is until you race it."
When asked what he was expecting from himself, he said that he was just going to give it everything. "I am really confident, but the thing with time trailing is that you can only go your maximum, leave everything out there. What everybody else does around you is going to affect your result so you can't control that. I just want to get the most out of myself tomorrow, I can't ask for any more."
