Driving It Across the Valley TOC23
Rather than on the climbs, BMC used the wind swept valley to drive the pace and split the peloton. With the break up the road, the American team (and reigning Team Time Trail World Champions) saw an opportunity to put some time into those near both Rohan Dennis and Brent Bookwalter. Or perhaps Taylor Phinney was driving the pace to put Greg Van Avermaet in with a chance to make up for his second place on Stage 3. Joining the BMC armada was the pink bike riding Kiel Reiinen (Trek-Segafredo).
