The translation of German Tony Martin’s nickname, “Panzerwagen,” results in the English word, “tank.” Martin has been just that during his career time trial performances. He backed up his nickname in today’s Tour de France Stage 20 time trial, winning in a time of 1 hour, 6 minutes and 21 seconds. The reigning Time Trial World Champion put down an unmatched effort on the penultimate stage of the 2014 Tour, topping his closest competitor by a staggering 1 minute, 39 seconds.
The UCI Road and Time Trial World Championships were held over the past week in Holland and Oakley athletes topped the podiums of multiple events. Cyclists across both genders in team and individual competitions claimed the title of “World Champion” after some stunning performances.
