BMC Racing Team won the opening team time trial (TTT) at the Tirreno-Adriatico in Lido di Camaiore, Italy today.

The Americam team set the fastest time of 23:55 along today’s 22.7 kilometer course, finishing two seconds ahead of their closest rival, Etixx-QuickStep, followed by the FDJ team who finished a further 7 seconds back.

Crossing the line first, was BMC’s Daniel Oss, who now wears the maglia azzurra leader’s jersey.

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the new race leader said: “This is amazing! We came here with the team time trial as our first goal. This has been our speciality for a few years now. We love it and it all went as we wished. Other stages suit us and we want more results. It’ll be unusual for me to race with the leader’s jersey. Moreover, this is the first real race of the year for Tejay van Garderen. Apart from winning today, we wanted to position him as high as possible on GC. He’s here with high ambitions for the overall”.
