Cambridge's Jaime Nielsen has upset the defending champion Linda Villumsen to win the national time trial cycling title.

The 28-year-old powered home on the 25km,  out and back course in Lincoln to beat Villumsen, a five-time time trialling world championship medallist, by 28 seconds.

Villumsen held a four second lead at the halfway mark after the down wind section of the open course from Otago's Reta Trotman while Nielsen was a further four seconds adrift.

But the Olympian powered home to win her first time trial in a time of 34 minutes, 28 seconds ahead of Villumsen in second, Trotman in third and 2012 champion Lauren Ellis in fourth.
