IN IMAGES: WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TTT - Kare Dehlie Thorstad captures the drama of the men’s World Championship TTT (Getting ready… )
BMC DETHRONES OPQS TO WIN WORLD TTT TITLE
Although finishing with just four of their original six-man team — the minimum requirement — the American team got stronger as the course went on to win in a time of 1hr 3min 29.85sec. That was 35sec quicker than Australians Orica GreenEDGE, who, like several other teams that started later, were impeded by rain on their run in.
“It wasn’t a surprise,” said Van Garderen. “We definitely had respect for the other two teams here (on the podium) but we knew we had a chance.”
“To be so close once, there’s no reason not to be up there again.” In Valkenburg (two years ago) BMC were only three seconds off winning.
