Mixed Team Time Trial - it is part two of the Yorkshire 2019’s ‘Weekend of Firsts’. The Mixed Team Time Trial will the see national men’s and women’s Time Trial teams both hit the road around the Harrogate Loop for one lap each. Riding in a form of relay, the women set off as the men cross the line, the combined times will be used to decide the winner.
This new format will see a cooperative race between the national men and women’s teams, and will be the first time a mixed team can take the world Championship title as all the riders of the winning team will be awarded the Rainbow Jersey.
The Team Time Trial is a highly technical race format, where the team of riders make use of the incredible aerodynamic benefits of cyclists riding behind one another. With well-disciplined positioning and by rotating the rider up front to avoid fatigue the team can ride harder and faster for longer.
In the controlled environment of an indoor velodrome the Team Time Trial is a highly mathematical and organised race, but once it is taken out into the undulating and imperfect environment of the open road then a huge number of other factors come into play. The riders must maintain the small distance between each other to get the greatest benefit from riding as a team as they negotiate tight turns, changes in gradient and unpredictable crosswinds.
The team must be able to adapt and correct, work together and judge the effort each rider is capable of if they are to claim the coveted Rainbow Jersey.
