  • World Championships: Dennis chasing elusive rainbow jersey in the individual time trial

    Rohan Dennis’ stellar career as an individual time trial specialist lacks just one major victory – a world title. The Australian is aiming to fill that void at the 2018 UCI Road World Championshipson September 26 in Innsbruck, Austria.

    “I’ve prepared specifically for this individual time trial in Innsbruck,” Dennis told Cyclingnews Saturday morning, after his warm up with BMC Racing on the team time trial course.

    “Winning a world title is a big goal of mine. It’s something that I’ve always wanted. I want to win it even if it’s just once in my career, that would be perfect.”

    Dennis, 26, has been one of the sport’s most accomplished time triallists during his decade-long career. In his development years as an under-23 racer, he was second at the 2012 World Championships. He moved up to the WorldTour ranks with Garmin-Sharp in 2013, and two years later he joined the BMC Racing team where he has spent the past five seasons.

    His palmares includes individual time trial victories in stages at Tour de France in 2015, and at both the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España this year. He’s won time trial stages at the Tour of California, USA Pro Challenge, Eneco Tour, Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour de Suisse and the Abu Dhabi Tour, along with three elite national titles, and he briefly held the World Hour Record.

    This year alone he’s won six individual time trials. And so, it may come as a surprise to some that Dennis has never stood on the podium in the event at the elite men’s World Championships.

Operation Spartan

Shielding Vulnerable Road Users

Although many of you will have kept logging the miles through the winter months, the turn of spring usually sees more cyclists getting out and enjoying the roads of North Yorkshire, and we want to make sure everyone stays safe.

Spartan is a force-wide operation where officers and the public are encouraged to submit intelligence regarding instances of anti-social use of vehicles or poor driving. A profile of information will be collated for the police to assess and act upon, to ensure guidance and advice can be provided to those who need it.

Op Spartan is inviting the public to submit details of instances of dangerous or anti-social driving they have witnessed via the driving concern form below.The driving concern form captures the details of the incident and requests information such as vehicle number plate, so police can carry out the relevant checks and follow up with engagement or enforcement if required.

The Major Collision Investigation Team will collate the information and then take the appropriate course of action. This may be the registered owner of the vehicle is contacted by letter to suggest that their driving behaviour be amended to avert possible future collisions. More serious reports may involve a personal visit by a traffic officer and could ultimately result in prosecution
