Start of the season for many of the big guns. Sortainly many of the sprinters have this race marked in their calendars.
Today's 8,2 km Team Timetrial seems to be about the grudge-match between Sky and Garmin. To the winner goes the right to call the other "Wanker" I believe. Normally though, the day is dominated by Quick Step.
