AF­TER HIS SU­PERB per­for­mances this year in the Tour de France and La Vuelta, Bri­tain’s Chris Froome will be hop­ing to re­cover in time to com­pete in the men’s in­di­vid­ual time trial at Ber­gen, Nor­way, on Sun­day.

Bri­tain’s na­tional cham­pion Steve Cum­mings could also be in con­tention af­ter frac­tur­ing two ver­te­brae dur­ing Le Tour. This year’s time trial cov­ers a 31km course – the short­est in the event’s his­tory – but fea­tures a gru­elling fin­ish at Mount Floyen with gra­di­ents of nine per cent.
