Here's an overview of more of the day's time trial champions.

Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig victorious at Danish TT for the third time in a row

Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (Cervelo Bigla) has won the Danish time trial title. The rider completed the 24.2-kilometre course in 31 minutes and 49 seconds.

"This is a dream," said the rider. "The competition today was the strongest ever at a Danish championship. To beat the riders on the podium on a flat course is so crazy. They are incredible talents, world champions. I am so emotional. This is unbelievable."

Toms Skujins takes his first Latvian TT title

Toms Skujins (Trek-Segafredo) has won the Latvian time trial at the national championships. The rider went through the 32.4-kilometre route in 38 minutes and 37 seconds.

"This was my first TT title, and it was a big honour to win and have a year in the jersey," he commented. "This was a big goal of mine because this is a race you actually can control whereas the road race is always really hard – you need a lot of luck. I have to say a huge thank you to the team because they made sure I had some support here – and the local Trek guys came out to cheer me on and help. Also, some of my family members were here so it was a big pleasure to win."
