Josh Tarling stormed to victory in the European Time Trial Championships with a brilliant ride around Emmen.
Tarling started last in the 29.8 kilometre test, and quickly established himself as the man to beat, racing through the first time check with a rapid 61 kilometre-an-hour average speed.
From there, the Welshman never looked back, extending his lead through the second time check on a pan-flat course in the Netherlands.
Ultimately, Tarling would cross the line 42 seconds up on his nearest competitor to take the win.
Michal Kwiatkowski also put in a solid performance, to come 13th.

"It was hard, I felt weaker today than I did at the worlds. and the wind was really hard. Originally it was a lot of over and under with the crosswinds, but it changed to a more steady cross(wind) both ways and no tail or head wind. It was more about holding that high power all day. It was really hard."
