Solid, unwavering... & fun!
Riding together in a steady powerful paceline and finishing as a six-man unit, Omega Pharma Quick Step took the 53.2km TTT World Title. In hindsight, BMCs struggle up the Cauberg was their demise losing crucial time (3:23) and quite possibly the gold medal. My pick was the TT favorite Orica-GreenEDGE taking the bronze (47:06). Nothing stopping the consistency of the Martin Der Panzerwagen TTT machine. He now looks confidently for Wednesday's individual TT... where he just may nail it!
