La squadra WorldTour equipaggiata con la speciale bici da crono di Bianchi ha vinto ancora a Bruxelles infliggendo 20” al Team Ineos e 21” alla Deceuninck - Quick Step. Teunissen rafforza il suo primato in classifica

Treviglio (Bergamo), 7 luglio 2019 - Il celeste Bianchi si è abbinato perfettamente con il giallo del Tour de France nel primo weekend della Grande Boucle 2019. Dopo il successo di Mike Teunissen nella tappa inaugurale, il Team Jumbo-Visma ha colto un’altra straordinaria vittoria nella seconda frazione, una cronosquadre di 27,6 km con partenza e arrivo a Bruxelles (Belgio). Equipaggiata con Aquila CV, la bicicletta da cronometro più vincente del World Tour, la formazione olandese ha completato la prova in 28'57", alla media di 57,202 km orari, precedendo di 20 secondi il Team Ineos e di 21 la Deceuninck - Quick Step.
Grazie all'eccellente prestazione di squadra, la maglia gialla Mike Teunissen ha rafforzato il primato in una classifica generale che vede, ai primi cinque posti, altrettanti atleti equipaggiati con bici Bianchi. Dalla seconda alla quinta posizione, infatti, tutti staccati di 10", ci sono nell'ordine Wout Van AertSteven KruijswijkTony Martin e George Bennett. Teunissen detiene anche la maglia verde di leader della Classifica a Punti, Van Aert quella bianca della Classifica Giovani.

Quest’anno i corridori del Team Jumbo Visma stanno esaltando al meglio le qualità della loro bici da crono, considerando le sette vittorie già ottenute in prove individuali (con tre titoli nazionali conquistati), mentre come squadra si erano già imposti all’UAE Tour. 
Il Team Jumbo-Visma è equipaggiato con Aquila CV, il più avanzato modello Bianchi da cronometro, progettato con sistema Bianchi CV powered by Countervail. Aquila CV è studiata per garantire il massimo controllo e una maggiore riduzione del dispendio energetico.

Team INEOS seal strong second in Brussels TTT
Team INEOS enjoyed a strong outing on the stage two team time trial at the Tour de France, finishing second in Brussels.

The team were first down the ramp in the Belgian capital and set an opening benchmark time of 29 minutes and 18 seconds. That marker held up well, as 20 teams tried and failed to finish quicker across a fast power course.

With the team waiting on the hot seats, it was Jumbo-Visma who crossed the line last, taking victory on the day by a margin of 20 seconds. 

Despite missing out on the stage victory, the day proved to be a successful one as both Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal climbed the general classification, taking key time out of a number of contenders. 

Without the benefit of knowing the time splits of their rivals, the team set a consistent pace across the course. Luke Rowe and then Wout Poels emptied the tank before pulling off, with Michal Kwiatkowski following suit on the finish straight. Thomas led the team in, flanked by Bernal, Gianni Moscon, Jonathan Castroviejo and Dylan van Baarle.

The result moves half of the team up into the top 10 overall, with Bernal and Thomas sitting 30 seconds behind continued race leader Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma).


- Geraint Thomas

"It was quite good going off first as your judgment on how the ride went isn’t skewed by the result, but I felt it was good.

"Looking at GC, it’s a good performance, but obviously we wanted to win. I think 20 seconds [to Jumbo-Visma] is a big enough gap to know a few mistakes didn’t cost us the stage win. It was a positive day for sure.

"I have no injury issues, I was going pretty slow when I hit the barriers yesterday - I'm absolutely fine."

- Egan Bernal

"I think we did a really good TTT and it was really nice to be in the hot seat. We took some time on some good GC riders today so it was perfect for us. I felt really good in the stage - the feeling was better than last year in the TTT. I can be happy with that because I'm not a specialist and I was doing the TT with some strong guys. It was difficult but I felt good.

"I'm happy to be through these first two stages. In a Grand Tour you have to go day by day. I'm already thinking about tomorrow."

- Nicolas Portal

"Fantastic. This morning everyone was nervous. We’ve always done well in the TTT at the Tour but we’ve never won it. It’s day two so if you’re not too sure, you can lose time. We were pretty confident but you never know, and it’s a stressful day. 

"At the end we’ve just been beaten by one team. We are a GC team and the guys have been working hard at climbing. They are all good time triallists but they’ve been working hard to become super climbers. So, for a climbing team, that’s a really good result."

Tour de France #2: Team Dimension Data 14th in TTT

Team Jumbo-Visma made it 2 stages out of 2, by winning today's team time trial at the Tour de France. Team Ineos was 2nd and Deceuninck-Quickstep finished in 3rd place. 

The stage 2 TTT was run over 27.6km in Brussels and it was a fast course with the top teams averaging around 57km/h for the entire route. The big GC teams were under pressure to not lose major time to any of their key rivals which made for an exciting race at the top of the leader board. 

Ineos, being the first team off, held the hot seat from early on. Quickstep came close to taking the lead, within 1 second of the British team, but in the end, it was the final team to finish that would dislodge Ineos, Team Jumbo-Visma. 

Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, not expected to challenge for the top placings today, put together a fair performance to finish in 14th out of the 22 teams, 54 seconds behind the winners. 

It was 30 minutes of hell out there but actually, I think it went really well for us. We haven't done much focused TTT training together as a group but we had a plan today and we executed that plan well." - Michael Valgren 

After taking the yellow jersey yesterday, and Team Jumbo-Visma winning today, Mike Teunissen retained the yellow jersey heading into tomorrow's stage 3.
