The time trial is often referred to as the race of truth but also sometimes thought of as quite a boring event. Wednesday’s Olympic time trials were anything but boring, with star-studded startlists in both the women’s and men’s events, and gold medals for two riders left disappointed in recent days and weeks.

With so much action crammed into just 65.6 km of racing across both events, we felt there was no better way to display the grit, determination, disappointment, and celebration than with a huge gallery.

So, put the kettle on and enjoy a selection of photos from the action at the Tokyo Olympics, courtesy of the Cor Vos photo agency.
