Dutchman Tom Dumoulin took a stunning victory in the men's time-trial at the the world championships in Bergen Wednesday.Having finished third behind Bradley Wiggins and Martin in 2014 and second to Fabian Cancellara at last year's Rio Olympics, this was a first major global time-trial title for Dumoulin, whose Sunweb outfit claimed team time-trial gold Sunday.The four-time Tour champion worked his way up from 19th at the first time check to seventh by the fifth and final one ahead of the climb.But the biggest surprise came from former champion ski-jumper Roglic, who was ninth at the final time check but produced the fastest climb of anyone – and half a minute quicker than Froome – to surge up to second.
