American Brandon McNulty claimed the gold medal in the junior men’s time trial at the UCI worlds Tuesday. “I’m from Arizona, so I’m used to the heat. I conserved my energy initially and started pushing hard from the 10th minute. From then on, it was all or nothing for me. I’m so glad I won,” McNulty said.

The 18-year-old rode the course in Doha, Qatar in 34:42, good enough for a 35-second triumph over Denmark’s Mikkel Bjerg. American Ian Garrison finished third, 53 seconds behind McNulty. “I’m very happy because this medal was unexpected,” said Garrison. “I began slowly, conserved my energy and pushed hard towards the end.”

McNulty finished third at last year’s worlds in Richmond, Virginia.

McNulty has enjoyed a strong season, which includes general classification victories at Tour du Pays de Vaud, Trofeo Karlsberg, and Tour de l’Abitibi. He won two time trials at the Tour de l’Abitibi and one at the Trofeo Karlsberg. McNulty also won the GC at the 2015 edition of the Tour de l’Abitibi.

Though the 100-degree desert heat did not affect the winner, who hails from Arizona, Belgian Jasper Philipsen, 18, had to be taken to a Doha hospital after the race. Later Tuesday, his team said he was in “stable” condition.
