LONDON: Vuelta a Espana winner Chris Froome will compete in the time trial at the UCI Road World Championships in Norway next week, British Cycling coaches said on Tuesday.  Froome, fresh from completing a rare Tour de France-Vuelta double in Madrid at the weekend, will not take part in the road race in Bergen. But he will take one of Britain’s two places in the time trial. The men’s time trial, on September 20, will be contested over a 31-kilometre course which features one significant climb.  Froome’s main rivals are expected to be Giro d’Italia win­ner Tom Dumoulin of the Netherlands and the reig­ning world time trial champion, Tony Martin of Germany.
