To the Line TDF19-7
It was a surprise to me that Ineos was the first team off the line in Bruxelles this morning. It however was no surprise that they posted the best time at the finish line (after all, at that point they were the only ones to get there). However, their time held as best time up until the very last team finished the 27 kilometer Team Time Trial. Had their time held, the defending champion, Geraint Thomas, would have pulled on the Maillot Jaune on the second day of the Tour. Not exactly an ideal situation for the team. Thomas came to the line in Brussels with four of his seven teammates including, Michal Kwiatkowski, Egan Bernal, Jon Castroviego, Gianni Moscon and Dylan Van Baarle.
