Coming In All Together
Orica GreenEdge was at a distinct disadvantage in today's Team Time Trial. The team has lost three of its members to the crashes that plaque the early stages of the Tour. The team time trial is run with the entire team racing together against the clock, however the time is taken when the fight rider crosses the line. With three less men to share the work load it was unlikely that the team was going to finish the day on the top of the leader board. Unlike most of the other teams, Orica GreenEdge came to the line with all of their riders together.
