Giro d'Italia, Stage 1: Good Start

7. May 2011

Torino, Italy

The BMC Racing Team finished 13th of 23 teams Saturday in the team time trial that opened the Giro d'Italia, crossing the line with all nine of its riders.

Satisfying Result

At the intermediate point of the 19.3.-kilometer race, the BMC Racing Team had the ninth-fastest time. "They did a great job and had a very strong start," BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Fabio Baldato. "It was good to see them all together at the finish. For having so many young guys, in their first Grand Tour, they did a really good job." HTC-Highroad took the win, 41 seconds faster than the BMC Racing Team, with Marco Pinotti taking the race lead.
