  • Australian 2nd to Roglic, Gal Glivar wins Giro Del Belvedere

UAE Team Emirates got off to a flying start on day 1 of the Itzulia Basque Country, placing three riders in the top-11 of the time trial, with Jay Vine the best-placed in second place at just 7’’ from the winner Primoz Roglic (Bora Hansgrohe).

Roglic clocked the fastest time of 12’34’’ and becomes the first leader of the race with Vine pushing a blistering pace of 47.3kmph on the undulating course starting and finishing in Irún (10km) .

Vine: “I’m really happy with the ride, it was a late addition to my schedule to come here and I’m always happy to get the opportunity to race a nice TT. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week and see what I can do as the week goes on. It’s a tough week on paper with some heavy climbing days but me and the boys are ready and motivated for it.”

Other notable performances were put in by Juan Ayuso (7th) and Brandon McNulty (11th) as both riders also come into the race in flying form with numerous victories to their names already this season.

Tomorrow the Itzulia continues with stage 2 from Irun to Kanbo (160km).
