Remco Evenepoel will swap one rainbow jersey for another. The outgoing World Road Champion won the 2023 World Time Trial Championship with a perfectly calibrated ride to overcome two-time champion Filippo Ganna on a course that was built for his strengths. British rider Joshua Tarling was a mild-upset bronze medalist over American Brandon McNulty as Belgium’s other big threat, Wout van Aert, finished fifth.

Britain's Joshua Tarling races across the Scottish landscape in the 2023 World Time Trial Championships. He's wearing the white and blue kit of the British national team, aboard a white Pinarello Bolide time trial bike, in an efficient aero tuck.
Britain (and Ineos Grenadiers) appears to have another major TT talent on its hands in Joshua Tarling.
