Essex cyclist Alex Dowsett said he was pleased with his performance in the elite men’s time trial at the Road World Championships after he secured a 12th place finish.

In sweltering conditions in Qatar, Dowsett completed the 40km route in 46:54.07 - around two minutes behind the eventual winner Tony Martin.

"It was alright for me. I think I managed myself well and I’m not sure I could have done a lot more," he told British Cycling.

"There was always that concern after seeing the scary moment in the women’s team time trial and some of the others wondering what was going to happen towards the end."
