The UCI Road World Championships - Men's Time Trial is the annual world championship for road bicycle racing in the discipline of time trial, organised by the world governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale. The event was first run in 1994. Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland holds the record for most titles in total - four (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010), and Australian Michael Rogers won three consecutive titles, from 2003 to 2005. The 2003 championship was initially won by the British rider David Millar. Millar later admitted to doping during the event and was stripped of the title. Rogers was subsequently awarded the gold medal for the 2003 event at the 2004 event.
