The Friday Individual Time Trials is one of the most spectator- friendly stages. The aero-dynamic helmets, speed suits and specialty bikes offer photographers terrific opportunities to capture individual riders on camera.

Staged in the town of Tyrone, the racing will go on for hours as each rider tackles the course alone. The course is wide open with plenty of places along the roadside to observe the racers as each one tackles the course alone. The start/finish area in Tyrone is a great place to get a close-up look at the riders and their equipment as they warm up. Racers leave at 30-second intervals and battle the clock and 304.8 m (1,000 ft) of climbing.

It is a grueling conflict against wind on the smooth and rough black top.
There is a turn-around between mile markers 30 and 29. The Time Trial is often called the “race of truth” as it is the strongest individual effort over the 26.6 km (16.5 mi) course that will win the day.
