ORICA-GreenEDGE has claimed the opening team time trial at the Giro d’Italia in San Remo this afternoon, seven seconds faster than nearest rivals Tinkoff-Saxo.
The Australian outfit finished the 17.6km race against the clock in 19minutes 26seconds, 2014 Liege-Bastogne-Liege champion Simon Gerrans the first rider across the line to claim first honours in the pink ‘maglia rosa’ leader’s jersey.
“If I could chop the front of this jersey into nine pieces and share it amongst my teammates I would,” Gerrans said.
