|Reigning World Time Trial Champion Tony Martin (Omega Pharma - Quick-Step) blazed through the 40.7 kilometer course at the 2012 German National Time Trial Championships to win his second national time trial championship. Martin's Omega Pharma - Quick-Step teammate, Bert Grabsch rode to second on the course, 1:26 behind Martin. Lars Teutenberg placed third, 1:54 back.
"I'm really happy about my race," Martin said after his victory. "Today I was looking for a good result, and a good performance, and I got both. It's important even for the confidence prior to the Tour de France. It was a good test in function for an important event such as the Olympics. It was nice to win in front of my friends and my family, It was great. Even Bert did a great race. Tomorrow I'll go home, I will recover, and I will focus on the last training sessions before the Tour."
