Rohan Dennis claimed victory Sunday during Team Ineos' Alpe du Zwift race, pulling away form his virtual rivals and road teammates before the final namesake climb and putting his world championship time trial skills to work to hold them off. Eddie Dunbar was second, followed by Michal Kwiatkowski.

 “There was supposed to be a plan, but in the end I felt it was better to just go for it, why not? It worked out," Dennis said in a post-race interview with the team.
“It was a good little hit out. I spotted Cam (Wurf) with me and I couldn’t let him sit on my wheel for too long, so I pushed a bit harder and dropped him, then I could sit on my TT pace from there," Dennis said.
“It’s a time when nobody is allowed to ride with anybody, so we’re lucky to have technology like this so we can do something for the fans to keep them across what we’re doing and how we’re training."
