It’s the first day of time trials at the UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire and the Cyclingnews team analyse all the action from today’s team time trial mixed relay, in which the dominant Dutch brushed aside a challenge from Germany and hosts Great Britain to win the gold.

We hear from Elisa Longo Borghini, Dan Bigham, Jan Bakelants and Lucinda Brand, while we also debate whether the inaugural TTT mixed relay was a startling success or if the UCI needs to go back to the drawing board.

This podcast was brought to you in association with Sportful, Pinarello, Floyd’s of Leadville and Wattbike.

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.
