Rohan Dennis has won his third consecutive Australian Time Trial title and the fifth of his career. The BMC Racing Team rider was faster than Luke Durbridge (Mitchelton-Scott) and his teammate Richie Porte.

Dennis finished the 40.9-kilometre circuit in 51:14, 1:08 minutes faster than the silver medalist Durbridge.

"I'm pretty happy. It was obviously a different run in this year with regards to training," said the rider at the end of the event. "I've been in Europe a lot longer and the main concern for me was the heat and how I was going to cope today. So, I'm glad I handled it quite well and came home with the win."

For Porte, it wasn't a perfect day, but he is content with the result. "I have to be happy with that," he commented. "Obviously, it's been a long time since I really raced hard and today was such a hard day. It's a hard course at the best of times but with that heat, it was a nice little hit out.

"The podium was the big goal and it was a good result for me. To finish third to Rohan Dennis, who is absolutely flying, and Luke Durbridge (Mitchelton-Scott), is not a bad podium. Miles Scotson was up there as well. I've really enjoyed the past two months, being fit and healthy, and now getting results in January. In cycling, you are only as good as your last performance."
