Copenhagen, Denmark is playing host to the UCI World Road Championships this week, and the Elite Men’s Time Trial takes place on Wednesday September 21, 2011. 

This event has been dominated in recent years by Fabian Cancellara, who will be looking for his fifth World Time Trial Championship. 

His major competition will be Germany’s Tony Martin who has taken marquee time trial wins at both the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. 

The time trial is called the Race of Truth, because it pits a rider against the clock absent any team assistance, with riders capable of averaging over 50 kilometers per hour (approximately 31 miles per hour). 

The riders will face 46.4 kilometers of racing at their limit, and here are five riders who will be the protagonists on Wednesday.
