Dennis shows his champion form

Reigning Under 23 time trial champion Rohan Dennis (Team Jayco Skins) powered to victory on the Tour of Geelong’s 20 kilometre time trial, which doubled as the Victorian time trial title championship race. Yet despite Dennis’ blistering ride he failed to take the outright lead, with Rhys Pollock (Drapac) holding on to a slim lead with two stages remaining.

Pollock wasn’t favoured to keep the race’s lead yet against the odds his fifth place on the stage allowed him to keep a seven second lead over second placed Dennis on general classification. David Pell (Drapac) claimed second place on the stage while Adam Phelan (McDonagh Blake - Witness) was the third fastest rider.
