Fabian Cancellara put the disappointment of his second-place finish at last week’s Tour de Suisse by blitzing the course nearly two minutes faster than his closest rival, Thomas Frei (Christina Watches-Onfone) at the Swiss national time trial championships. It was Cancellara's seventh national time trial title. The small but select field saw Martin Elimiger (AG2R La Mondiale) round out the final  podium spot.

Defending champion Martin Kohler (BMC Racing Team) was unable to repeat his success of last year and came in fourth place, nearly three-minutes behind the reigning Olympic and former world champion.

The national title was Cancellara’s first win since his return from injury during this year’s Tour of Flanders.

"It’s an honour to wear to the colours of your country" he said.

Cancellara will no doubt be looking to wear his national championship "colours" to another Tour de France prologue win.

There was extra motivation for the Swiss champion to win at ‘home’ as the course was held close to his residence.

"The race was only twenty kilometers from my home so this win is extra special" he said.
