The Men's team time trial of the 2017 UCI Road World Championships was a cycling event that took place on 17 September 2017 in Bergen, Norway. It was the 33rd edition of the championship, and the 6th since its reintroduction for trade teams in 2012. Belgian team Quick-Step Floors were the defending champions, having won in 2016. 17 teams and 102 riders entered the competition.[2]

After the women's Sunweb team won their team time trial earlier in the day,[3] the men repeated the feat,[4] with the German-registered outfit finishing 8.29 seconds clear of the BMC Racing Team from the United States.[5] The podium was completed by Team Sky of Great Britain, 22.35 seconds behind the time Team Sunweb.[5] Defending champions Quick-Step Floors finished fourth, 35.20 seconds down on the winners, and missed the medals for the first time since the race was reintroduced.

Course[edit]

The race started at Askøy and finished in the centre of Bergen. It was 42.5 kilometres (26.4 miles)-long and featured two climbs: Loddefjord, a 600-metre (2,000 ft)-long climb at an average gradient of 10% and the Birkelundsbakken, a climb 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) in length, at an average of 6%.[6]

Prevention of UCI WorldTeams boycott[edit]

Just as in 2016, the event had been due to award points towards the team rankings of the 2017 UCI World Tour. In August 2017, the Association International des Groupes Cyclistes Professionels (AIGCP) agreed a deal with the UCI to avoid a boycott of the race, but no points would be awarded towards the World Tour rankings.[7]
