GreenEdge got the edge on the rest of the competition and won today's opening TTT in Tirreno-Adriatico known as La Corsa dei Due Mari. A majority of GreenEdge riders are track based and rode perfectly for the kill today.

They put the hammer down and nailed it winning the 16.9km TTT  in 18:41, 17 seconds faster than the Cancellara led RadioShack-Nissan and Farrar led Garmin-Barracuda. Cadel Evans BMC was further behind (58s) having to cast off a struggling Philippe Gilbert.
