Rohan Dennis (Australia) stepped up when it mattered most to deliver a resounding win in the elite men's time trial at the UCI Road World Championships on Wednesday.

The Australian decimated the field to defend his 2018 title and answered many of his critics after his controversial walkout from the Tour de France in July.

Dennis beat starlets Remco Evenepoel (Belgium) and Filippo Ganna (Italy), and we hear from all three riders in our podcast.

We debate where this win leaves Dennis' career and if this opens the door for a return to Bahrain-Merida, or if his decision to snub trade-team equipment was the final nail in the coffin.

We analyse a number of other key performances, including several riders who underperformed, and we hear from Vuelta a España winner Primoz Roglic.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
