It was a fast time trial today. I was never worried because the seconds were in my advantage before the start.”

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, today’s stage winner Rohan Dennis said: “It’s been a great week for BMC as we started with a team time trial victory and we finish with an individual time trial victory. We’ve had some ups and downs but overall it’s very good. It was a tough course today with the head wind but I manage to keep some strength for the second half of the race.”
