Tom Dumoulin, Rohan Dennis and Tony Martin are among the favourites in a strong field for the Eneco Tour stage two time trial

Several of the world’s best time triallists will be looking to take the overall lead of the Eneco Tour on Tuesday’s stage two time trial, with Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) and Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step) among the favourites.

The 9.6km route will probably not throw up huge time gaps, but given the first stage sprint left most riders within 10 seconds of race leader Dylan Groenewegen it is likely the lead will change hands.

World champion Vasil Kiryienka (Team Sky) will set off at 13.00 BST, with Rohan Dennis (BMC) following him and Dumoulin setting off 26 minutes later. Former race winner Martin will go off at 14.14 and goes into the stage on good form, having won the Tour of Britain time trial ahead of Dennis and Dumoulin on September 10.
