Day 2 of the 2015 UCI Championships: Women's and men's time trial

Team @velociosports took home the gold for the women and @BMCProTeam took home gold for the men. A summary of Day 2 of the 2015 UCI Championships by iPadJournos reporters Matt Leonard and Margo Maier.


  1. The day started in the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden at 11:30 a.m. with women's teams leaving the starting gate. Teams waited through 90 second countdowns and left the park in waves.
  2. At the convention center downtown fans were in attendance at Fan Fest where businesses, artists and others were putting on exhibits. Others were lining the street to watch the racers.
  3. Monument Avenue, home of numerous statues of confederate soldiers, had fans lining its sidewalks the day after a press conference was held in which an activist group said the statues did not represent the feelings of the city.
  4. The winners in the women's time trial took to the podium just after 1:30 p.m.
  5. Back in Lewis Ginter, the men were beginning to leave the starting gate.
