Held on Wednesday 1 August, the men's and women's time trials (44km and 29km respectively) take place over a single lap which will incorporate sections of Richmond, Kingston-upon-Thames and Surrey. Riders start 90 seconds apart and the winner is the rider with the fastest time over the course. What's more, both events are free to watch, which should make them a popular choice for spectators.
