World Championship: Mixed men-women national teams for 2019 worlds TTT



The World Championship Team Time Trial race will be officially replaced by mixed national squads of both men and women with separate times which will be added together.


This news was made public only a couple of hours ago by the UCI.


The cycling body, in May, announced that the trade squad would ride the TTT at the UCI Road World Championships in Innsbruck, for the last time hinting that something like this might happen by also saying that  their main intention starting 2019 was to ensure excellent visibility for both “National Federations and riders”.


According to some resources, the national teams will compete in mix rosters containing three men and three women.


TTT time


The team time trial will be organized in such way that the men will ride their TTT first and then they will be followed by the women who will ride their TTT and then finally, their end times will be added together and a final team time will be generated.


According to experts, the new decision would make life easier for most nations. Mostly because this means they will only have to put together a squad of three top-time trialist of each gender. In 2012 was the first trade team competition, including both men and women, held.
