First ever mixed team time trial
Yorkshire will be making history by hosting the first ever Team Time Trial Mixed Relay with national teams consisting of three male riders and three female riders. The male riders will set off first and the women will replace them on the road as soon as the second male rider has crossed the finish line. Final timings will then be taken when the second female rider crosses the finish line and the fastest team will be declared the winner.
The course has been designed to ensure it is as spectacular to watch as it is to ride, and tactics will certainly play their part as riders must judge their efforts to ensure their team is given the best possible chance of victory.
