Styby and his team started Tirreno-Adriatico really well. In the team time trial, which started the stage race, Quick Step Floors finished on a second place. The victory went to the BMC Racing Team and Damiano Caruso is the first leader.
“We gave it our all”, said Zdenek after the time trial. “Technically it went really well too. We cannot blame ourselves anything.” Tomorrow follows the longest stage of the week. It’s 228 kilometer long and the finish will be on a short climb.
