The cycling time trial offers an entirely different spectacle to the road race. The time trial is about man and machine working in harmony, unlike the road race it is very much about the bike.

Cycling Time Trial : I know what you're thinking, the last olympics (Games of the XXVIII Olympiad) had a 48km time trial, where would I find 48km of roads in Milngavie? I have seen lots of time trials in my life, but none more exciting than the opening stage of the 2005 Giro d'Italia (Giro d'LXXXVIII Italia) which was only 1km long, and at olympic level would have seen a 1 second being the difference between gold and forth place. At the end of the 2005 Giro d'Italia prologue they allowed a parade cycle to Super Mario Cippollini. The end of the olympic time trial would have a parade cycle by David Millar, purely because the man is a legend. It's Millar time.
