The Second race was a short burst: a 10km Time Trial on Watopia's Hilly Route.
A tricky course as the Zwift KOM Climb (900m, avg 5%) needs to be taken 1km after the startline, so starting too aggressive might wear out a riders legs.
After the start signal, it was belgium athlete Nicolas Vanderbruggen who pulled away with high speed taking the lead. Followed immediately by Niels Stehouwer, Michel Broeksma, Bart Pinkse and Frank Huisman. Halfway the climb Bart Pinkse took over the lead, with Michel Broeksma right behind. Frank and Niels were in each others wheel on 4rd and 5th place. Due to a shifting error, Frank's chain got stuck and needed to step off to resolve, resulting in a 40sec gap that in the end was not be closed in this short race.
Bart and Michel hammered on, with Bart taking a small lead resulting in a 18sec lead an the win of the day. Nicolas and Niels battled for 3rd place, with Niels taking the win building a 11sec gap on Nicolas in the last 2km's of the Race.
In the Woman field, is was Ingrid Hissink again, leading from start, just behind the first men.
