World time-trial champion Rohan Dennis has made his debut for Team Ineos at the Australian National Championships, and his new Pinarello Bolide TT has been painted to reflect his status as the best in the world. 

After a troubled period last season which saw him leave the Tour de France suddenly, terminate his contract and come close to developing an eating disorder, 2019 could have been a complete write-off for Rohan Dennis.

But he turned things around towards the end with an emphatic victory in the time-trial at the Yorkshire Worlds and secured a contract with cycling's all-conquering juggernaut, Team Ineos.

In his debut against the clock for his new team, Dennis finished second to Luke Durbridge, with the Mitchelton-Scott rider claiming a fourth national TT title.

Every pro wants to win, but Dennis's second place should be easily compensated by the fact that he'll still be in the rainbow skinsuit whenever he races against the clock this season.

Dennis's next races will also be in Australia where he's targeting the overall win at the Tour Down Under. The race doesn't include a time-trial, however, so it'll be a while before we get to see this bike in action again.
