Today the 2009 Australian Open Road Championships kicked off in Ballarat with the individual time trials for the Elite Women, U23 Woman and the U23 Men.

Carla Ryan (Cervelo) took the national title in the women's category. For the 23 year old Ryan it's her second Australian title time trial. The first one was in 2007. In the 28 km time trial Ryan was one second faster than former Team Columbia rider Alexis Rhodes (Webcor Builders) and 13 seconds faster than Kathryn Watt. Defending Champion Bridie O'Donnell didn't start in Ballerat today. The Women's U23 title went to Josie Tomic.

In the Men's U23 category Beijing Olympian Jack Bobridge (19, Team AIS) continued his campaign of victories. The 19 year old won the U23 Australian Time Trial Championships with respectively 7 and 8 seconds over Travis Meyer and Michael Matthews. All three the riders are part of the AIS team.
