The rain fell almost all day, making the under-23 and women’s time trials extremely challenging for the riders in Yorkshire.

Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Rob Hatch in the Rapha cafe in Harrogate as they dissect the two races and reflect on an astonishing gold medal-winning performance by a young American rider.

We hear from Dean Downing, who is driving the commissaires all week, about just how tough the conditions were and how the organisers manage to improve the state of the roads for the women’s race in the afternoon.
