   Kert Martma has been achieving high ranks in the Filter Time Trial Cup for years, but someone else was always a little bit faster. In 2017 this changed - it became clear in the beginning of the season that Kert Martma was riding towards victory instead of Ivo Suur. Martma won 4 races out of 7 and was 2nd in the rest. His own student Sander Kempi became his main rival and got 2nd place overall. Therefore this was essentially a double victory and Kert Martma became the time trial king of Estonia.

As Ivo did not participate in the fifth stage, others also got the chance to wear the leader’s skinsuit - Kert Martma managed to get the yellow skinsuit.
