15:35 - Van der Breggen wins!

Anna van der Breggen takes a thrilling victory from Marlen Reusser with her ride right at the end!

The Netherlands rider pips Reusser in Imola by 15 seconds with a time of 40:20.

Ellen van Dijk finishes third behind Reusser. What a dramatic and enjoyable time trial.

15:30 - Reusser is the new leader

Marlen Reusser is the fastest! She usurps Ellen van Dijk of the Netherlands and now tops the timesheet.

Van der Breggen could well pip Reusser, though, so all eyes on her ride now.

15:22 - Van Dijk leads, Dygert crashes

Oh dear, a nasty looking crash for poor Chloe Dygert Owen, and she tumbles off the road and down a grassy bank. We really hope she is okay.

Meanwhile, Van Dijk is now fastest. It feels ages ago that Britain's Lizzie Banks was very briefly the leader...

15:15 - All eyes on Dygert Owen

Grace Brown of Australia is fastest now, but it is the defending champion Dygert Owen who has all the attention on her ride.

1 - Grace Brown (Australia) 0:41:21

2 - Emma Cecilie Norsgaard Jorgensen (Denmark) 0:41:42

3 - Mieke Kroger (Germany) 0:41:51

4 - Lauren Stephens (USA) 0:42:03

5 - Audrey Cordon Ragot (France) 0:42:13

6 - Georgia Williams (New Zealand) 0:42:36

15:00 - Final riders out

Chloe Dygert Owen, the favourite, begins her TT defence as she is the last rider out.

Anna Van der Breggen, another favourite for today, begins her effort now too.

14:51 - Jorgensen leads the way

Vittoria Bussi rolls down the ramp and the 33-year-old is another TT standout. She finished fifth in the European Championships a month ago.

This is where we currently stand:

1 - Emma Cecilie Norsgaard Jorgensen (Denmark) 0:41:42

2 - Mieke Kroger (Germany) 0:41:51

3 - Audrey Cordon Ragot (France) 0:42:13

4 - Elizabeth Banks (Great Britain) 0:42:43

5 - Mikayla Harvey (New Zealand) 0:42:53

14:42 - 'Sensational time!'

14:37 - Banks has lead briefly

Britain's Lizzie Banks briefly leads as she records 42:42. But that time is decimated by almost a minute by Denmark's Jorgensen in 41:42.

Meanwhile, Lauren Stephens goes through the first time check and is 19 seconds off the lead.

14:20 - Banks goes fastest

Britain's Banks goes fastest at the time check by 16.7 seconds and she is mightily impressive.

Duyck looked strong at the beginning of her run but she's now well off the pace.

14:07 - GB's Banks looking good

Eri Yonamine for Japan is the latest to come down the ramp, while Duyck suffers a bit of a dip.

Banks, meanwhile, storms past Martin from Spain and she is looking really quick. Check out her interview with Orla...

13:50 - Duyck setting the early pace

Ann-sophie Duyck is one of the first out and she is looking very good indeed. She looks likely to be the early pace-setter.

Elizabeth Banks of Britain is out now. She will co-lead the GB team in the road race with Lizzie Deignan.

Welcome to our live updates

Good afternoon! Chloe Dygert Owen will be the favourite to retain her Individual Time Trial title when the Cycling World Championship begins in Imola very shortly.

Racing is set to begin at 13:35 BST, with last year's top two (the American Dygert Owen and Dutch rider Anna van der Breggen) again the likeliest to take the rainbow jersey.

Road World Champion Annemiek van Vleuten is not expected to compete after fracturing her wrist and withdrawing from the Giro Rosa last week.

Why Imola?

The 2020 World Championships had been scheduled to be held in Switzerland, but a Swiss government extension of Covid-19 quarantine restrictions forced the UCI into a late venue change, moving the event to Imola.

As well as a venue change there was also a change in schedule, with the two individual time trials moved and the junior and U23 events postponed for a year, meaning that the 2020 Worlds will consist of four races across four days from Thursday 24 September to Sunday 24 September.

The Route

The riders will take on a 31.7km looped circuit that starts and finishes in Imola.

The Profile

The course is largely flat with just 200m of altitude gain.

Last Year's Race

America's Chloe Dygert Owen smashed the competition in last year's time trial in Yorkshire, beating her nearest rival Anna van der Breggen by 92 seconds.

WATCH - Dygert's sensational ride to take the world title

Dygert Owen's winning margin was the biggest of any individual time trial at a World Championships, and her dominance was clear when she overtook 2014 champion Lisa Brennauer inside 12km of the 20.4km course.

Annemiek van Vleuten finished in third, the only other rider to record a time within two minutes of the American.
