The Men's Individual Time Trial at the 2005 UCI Road World Championships was held on the second day of the event. Australian Michael Rogers took his third straight crown as TT World Champion, after winning in 2003 in Hamilton (Canada) and in 2004 in Bardolino (Italy).

Rogers made history when he became the first rider to win three elite world time trial championships. The 25 year old took his third successive title with a measured ride on the Casa de Campo circuit in Madrid today, beating Iván Gutiérrez (Spain) by 24 seconds and bronze medallist Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland) by the same margin.

Rogers started slowly, placing only fifth at the first check, but while early leader Bradley Wiggins (Great Britain) faded, the Australian continued to build speed. By checkpoint two he was second, eight seconds off the pace set by Gutiérrez, and then by the third point he had pulled seven seconds clear of the Spaniard.

Rogers' acceleration continued all the way to the line, his final winning margin rising to more than 20 seconds. Gutierrez and Cancellara were separated by fractions, while Rubén Plaza (Spain), Alexandre Vinokourov (Kazakhstan) and his compatriot Andrey Kaschechkin took fourth, fifth and sixth.
