The 36-year-old eased to victory with a time of 36:25, 55 seconds up on the next-quickest rider. He beat Miguel Heidemann (Leopard Pro Cycling) into second place. Max Walscheid (Qhubeka Assos) finished third at 1:10, while Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe) was fourth at 1:24.
"I had to go deep," Martin said. "The weather conditions were extreme. The heat made this time trial extra tough. Especially in the second part of the race it hurt. I was encouraged by the lap times. It was a great relief when I knew I was going to win. It is special to win this title for the tenth time. I am looking forward to riding in my country’s jersey in time trials for another year."
The elite men competed on hilly route of more than 30 kilometres and Martin recorded the fastest time at the intermediate point.
At the finish, Martin had an advantage of almost a minute over his nearest competitor Heidemann.
