Italy’s Filippo Ganna will start 90 seconds before his Ineos Grenadiers teammate and defending world time trial champion Rohan Dennis in Friday’s TT contest for elite men, hoping his rapid development in the last 12 months can help him set a faster time than the Australian on the 31.7km out-and-back course in Imola.

Ganna beat Dennis in the recent 10km time trial at Tirreno-Adriatico, setting a new record time for the course and bettering Dennis by 26 seconds. Ganna won the bronze medal last year in Yorkshire behind Dennis and Remco Evenepoel (Belgium), but Dennis caught and passed him during the 54km time trial.
