Jump start Team LottoNL-Jumbo in Tour de France’s opening TT

Team LottoNL-Jumbo rode a good opening time trial in the Tour de France. Jos van Emden finished fifth in Utrecht, Wilco had the ninth best time and Robert Gesink finished 11th – all well propelled by the home Dutch crowd on the 13.8-kilometre course in Utrecht. As a result, Team LottoNL-Jumbo leads the team classification. Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) won the time trial and took the general classification lead.

“It was superb,” Wilco said. “It was one big wall of sound. That gave me adrenaline and I think that we all went faster because of that. I imagined it, but of course, it was even better. I’m very satisfied with my race. I started this Tour in a good way.”
