BMC reaction
Daniel Oss: "It is amazing because this is my home and I did not expect this result. I was a bit nervous before, but I wanted to to do this and we did it. So I feel good now."
Sport Director Fabio Baldato: "It was great to be here two days before and work together on the time  trial bikes. Everybody was really strong. We started full gas. We said we needed to start fast and be on the limit immediately. I didn't want to plan who would be first but I was thinking it would be nice for Daniel because he lives here, he's at home with all the fans and now he can spend more time with the journalists and give some peace to Cadel early. But or sure, from tomorrow, Cadel is the only leader we have."

Team Sky Reaction
Sports Director Dario Cioni: “We knew it would be an interesting stage starting with a limited number of riders. But there was no doubting the quality of the team we do have here. There were a few small mistakes but when you go full gas in a TTT that is sometimes what happens. The guys had a really good ride, especially in the second half. Even though there were just six of them they didn’t lose time to any other team. So that was impressive and it means they have a good condition. We have Philip in there who is still returning from a long break following injury. We knew Brad was on form after Roubaix. We had Cataldo and Kosta coming down from a training camp at altitude, so maybe they didn’t have the ideal run-in to the race.
Being in third puts us in a really good position tactically. On paper tomorrow should be the easiest of the three mountain stages. It will be about seeing where everyone is. Cataldo and Kosta have the chance to ride for GC, while for Brad it’s an important training block as he builds towards California. It’s the first climbing he’s done since the Classics so he’ll see how he feels on the day.”
