Rohan Dennis continued his great form in e-racing to claim victory in the opening event of the Digital Swiss 5.
Dennis, fresh from his recent win versus his teammates in the inaugural Team INEOS eRace, started at a strong pace before edging into the lead on the first climb.
After overhauling Jimmy Whelan (EF Pro Cycling), Dennis began to extend his lead, setting an impressive pace to push his advantage out to beyond a minute. His eventual winning margin over Nicolas Roche (Team Sunweb) was 1:09.
Cameron Wurf was another rider to start strongly, holding an early third place before eventually securing an impressive top-10 finish. Carlos Rodriguez was the third rider in action on the day, with another three riders set to be announced on Thursday morning, ahead of race two in the afternoon.

“It feels pretty good. It was more or less a 53-minute time trial. Obviously aerodynamics doesn’t come into play but weight does. It’s all about the power to weight – so it’s good to know that the training that I’m doing right now is really working for my time trialling in particular.
