Giro del Trentino, Stage 1: Two In Top 12

19. April 2011

Arco, Italy

Alessandro Ballan finished ninth and Steve Morabito was 11th for the BMC Racing Team in the opening time trial Tuesday at the Giro del Trentino.

Stage 2 Suits Ballan

Ballan said he has recovered well from his sixth place at Paris-Roubaix. "I've been doing easy training every day," he said. "For me, today was a good test. I feel good." Andreas Kloden (Team RadioShack) took the win. Ballan said Wednesday's stage suits him well. "There's a little climb near the finish that's not too hard and the last four kilometers are flat," he said. "I hope I can stay near the front."
