Carter Turnbull (InForm TMX MAKE) won the Under 23 individual time trial at the 2022 Federation University Road National Championships taking the title for a second year running.
Turnbull (InForm TMX MAKE) finished in a time of 37:31.69, slower than last year in the windy conditions but still a comfortable win as he finished more than 37 seconds ahead of second placed Mathew Dinham (Team BridgeLane), while Zachary Marriage (Team BridgeLane) in third was about 20 seconds further back.
"Coming back as defending champion there is a lot more pressure on your shoulders so to get a good ride on the day was just what I was hoping for and it was enough, with the wind, so I was pretty happy," Turnbull told Cyclingnews.
The race against the clock was run over two laps, totalling 28.6km, on a course that started and finished at the Federation University’s Mount Helen campus, starting and finishing with some sharp turns and around 180 metres of elevation gain across each lap.
Turnbull's teammate Rudy Porter, came fourth, with the pair looking set to make a powerful duo on Saturday, when the U23 road race plays out. Porter finished second last year while Turnbull took third, and they have a strong team behind them plus the biggest numbers of any squad at 12, according to the start list.
The road race is the final men's under 23 event, taking place after the criterium on Friday. It runs on Saturday afternoon at Buninyong, with 12 laps of the course to take the total distance to 139.2 km.
