Team Sunweb's Ellen van Dijk (NED) has been crowned the European time trial champion for 2nd year

For the second year in a row, Team Sunweb's Ellen van Dijk (NED) has been crowned the European time trial champion after taking the victory in Denmark today. 

With the parcours perfectly suited to her strengths van Dijk dominated the 31.5 kilometre course, setting the fastest time at each intermediate check-point. After powerfully navigating her way around the route in challenging weather conditions, van Dijk stormed past her rivals taking the victory by just under one minute, stopping the clock with a time of 40 minutes and 33 seconds.

After the win van Dijk said: "I'm really happy to prolong my title. It's always special to win something like this and I feel proud to wear the jersey. The course suited me well and I felt I had good legs. There were long straights with some small hills and the rain made some of the corners more challenging. Luckily I was going really well so didn't have to take any risks and managed to get around safe to take the title again."
