The 27-year-old Luxembourger became the 11th different Deceuninck – Quick-Step rider to score a victory this year.

Bob Jungels produced another solid display at the National Championships and won the time trial for the sixth time in his career, after 2013, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019. The outright favourite at the start of the race which this year took place in Mamer, Bob clocked a winning time of 26:19, beating Alex Kirsch (Trek-Segafredo) and Kevin Geniets (Groupama-FDJ) by a huge margin, of more than 40 seconds.

The course was 21 kilometers in length and consisted of two laps of a rolling circuit featuring two short but punchy climbs. Jungels went fast as soon as he rolled down the ramp, a flying ride seeing him record the fastest time at the intermediate checkpoint and set the early mark for success, his first of the season.

“Every title at the Nationals is special, but this one feels more special, because we didn’t know if we would race again this year, so every race we do and every victory we get is important. To win another ITT title is nice and it makes me proud that I could deliver it for the team and I will now end the season with this jersey on my shoulders. I rode a very good time trial, I am happy with my condition and now I’m looking forward to Sunday’s road race”, said Bob after claiming Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s 25th win of the year.
