Former world junior time trial champion Mikhail Ignatiev of Russia won this afternoon's under-23 championship in Madrid, beating all the pre-event favourites by a considerable margin as the wind got up late on. Ignatiev, 20, finished 35 seconds ahead of Ukraine's Dmytro Grabovski, with New Zealand's Peter Latham, another couple of seconds behind in the bronze medal position.

British track star Ed Clancy, a member of the world championship-winning team pursuit quartet, finished 37th, 4-22 down on the winner and two places ahead of procycling Fab4 member Rafaa Chtioui. British under-23 time trial champion Ben Greenwood finished 45th.
