26-year-old Andrew Talansky earned himself a year in the American TT champion's jersey, while his teammate Ben King took runner-up honors
Cannondale-Garmin’s Andrew Talansky blazed to his first national time trial title Saturday in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional Road and Time Trial Championships. Talansky’s time of 38:48 was enough to best the second-place time of teammate Ben King by 10 seconds. David Williams of Jamis-Hagens Berman took third place at 39 minutes.
“It’s fantastic,” Talansky told VeloNews. “I’m really proud of the effort today. It’s definitely miles away from how I was feeling a couple weeks ago in California and I’m really proud to bring the jersey back to Cannondale-Garmin.”
