2022 National Championships

With the Australian TTs being held tomorrow (tonight/early tomorrow morning), it's time to open the thread.

Men's route - same as usual


Women's route


Men's startlist (it's a 10-hour time difference with CET time so the first starter is at 7:30 CET)

Women's startlist

Just under 9 hours until he's supposed to start and we still don't know for sure whether the reigning champion can take part! Great start to the season.

Plapp is gonna ride?
 
I am unsure if Plapp will ride the ITT as he may be still be isolating after being deemed a close contact of his GF Georgia Baker - He should be right for the RR - There should not be an elite RR for men and women in both 2021/2022 because Government travel restrictions due to COVID have resulted in few Aussies returning home.
 
New-Zealand's TT is dominated by Bolton Equities Black Spoke Pro Cycling. They occupy the top 4, and winner Regan Gough isn't one of their better known riders. What makes it even more remarkable, is that UAE's Finn Fischer-Black and George Bennett finish 5th and 7th, more than two minutes down.

Black Spoke also took out the U23 mens TT with Logan Currie.

Higuita repeats. It would have been nice to have Chaves but luck didn't help him. Higuita is a worthy winner anyway. The plans are to send him to the Vuelta. ??? Do they plan to win big at the Tour or they are just going for stages?
I think Bennett with a train, Vlasov for GC but without much support (basically like Keldermann last year) and the rest for stages.
