There is no doubt about result of the team time trial (TTT) in Århus on Sunday. Whatever happens, Nicole Cooke (Univega) be presented with the leader's jersey to the World Cup series. The inclusion of this, the first TTT in the World Cup invokes slightly different rules about points awarded. The detail is below, but in short, the maximum the winning rider can take from the event is 35 points. That is not enough to dislodge Cooke from her jersey, even if second-placed after the race in Vårgårda on Friday (see
Vårgårda results  or Current Rankings ), Judith Arndt (T-Mobile) is in the winning team on Sunday.

TTT Points to be awarded towards the World Cup

Teams consist of 6 riders. The clock is stopped when the fourth rider from a team crosses the line. The fastest four in the team (or more riders if finishing with the fastest four) will be awarded points according to the scale below :

* The number of points indicated is awarded to the first four riders and any

other rider finishing at the same time as the fourth. Should the team cross the

line with fewer than 4 riders no points shall be awarded.

 

Given that Arndt is 49 points behind Cooke, the World Cup lead is not in danger.

However, the concept of a TTT is something which the teams relish. Its not something which they get to compete in very often during the year. A few tours include a TTT (Tour de L'Aude, Holland Ladies Tour, for example). The riders take it seriously. Earlier in the year, the Bates sisters from Australia (Kate (current Australian RR Champion) rides for Équipe Nürnberger and Natalie (current Commonwealth Games RR Champion), who rides for AA Drink, commented to WCN that the TTT provides teams with a chance to put everyone on the podium. In road races, the winner gets the glory, but the efforts of her team to assist that victory are sometimes overlooked. In a TTT, everyone puts in the effort and gets to celebrate.

This particular TTT takes place in Århus, in Denmark. The course is 41.4km long. It is a mainly out-and-back course, with some technical corners in the start and finish area, where the course differs slightly on the outward and return journeys. The profile shows a basically flat course, with a drag / slow climb from the start to mid-distance and then downhill back to the finish. There are a couple of rises, but the course doesn't deviate more than 100m along its complete length.

The teams to look out for in the top honours could be considered "usual contenders", those that have riders in the top of the individual classification. The fact is, though, that Buitenpoort-Flexpoint are a strong TTT team. The impact of their efforts to assist Susanne Ljungskog to victory just 2 days prior in Vargarda and their subsequent recovery may be a factor which counts against them. AA Drink are also a TTT team who can do well, but T-Mobile and Univega should not be overlooked.
