BinckBank Tour: Küng wins stage 2 time trial

BMC rider is new race leader

Stefan Küng (BMC) took advantage of an early start and worsening weather conditions to win the twisting city-centre 9km time trial on stage 2 of the BinckBank Tour.

The Swiss national time trial champion finished near the back of the peloton on Monday's opening stage to ensure he started early in the time trial around Voorburg near The Hague. He avoided the worst of the weather conditions, setting a time of 10:58 on damp roads, with his rivals struggling to match his time as the rain became heavier and the numerous corners sparked high-speed crashes.

Fellow early starter Maciej Bodnar (Bora-Hansgrohe) finished four seconds slower, with Dutch national time trial champion Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) third at five seconds.

Many riders crashed on the slippery and often tight city-centre corners, including world time trial champion Tony Martin (Katusha-Alpecin). Gijs van Hoecke (LottoNL-Jumbo) went down on the same corner, with even his mechanic slipping as he ran to get a new bike for his rider. Fortunately no one was seriously injured but the crashes sparked an angry reaction about rider safety and the course design.

Sep Vanmarcke (Cannondale-Drapac) and Jasha Sütterlin (Movistar) tried to take on Küng and limit their time losses despite the terrible conditions, while most other riders, including Marcel Kittel (Quick-Step Floors), rode cautiously, happy to avoid crashing. Vanmarcke set a time of 11:31, with Sütterlin nine seconds faster in 11:22.

Race leader Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) started last and used his renowned bike skills and took a few risks to try to limit his losses. He set a time of 11:23 and so remains eighth overall, only 15 second down on new leader Küng.

The BinckBank Tour includes stages in the Ardennes and the roads of the Flemish cobbled Classics. Küng is hoping to defend the leader's green jersey to the end in Geraardsbergen on Sunday but knows that every second, including those on offer as time bonuses during stages and at the finish, will likely decide the final overall winner.

"The goal is to take the lead to the finish," Küng said. "It's going to be hard because there are some difficult stages to come, in the Ardennes and to Geraardsbergen. But I'm coming off the Tour de France in good shape so I'll fight for it to the end.

"It was a really difficult parcours. Even when I went out the roads were wet and it was raining slightly. There were a lot of tricky corners. We saw a few crashes and you had to be focused. There were like 20 turns and you have to remember which one you take which way.

"I saw [BMC press officer] Georges [Lüchinger] give the thumbs up after the line, like 'you have the best time.' So then I thought, okay, Dumoulin, Bodnar, Jos van Emden, a lot of good guys beaten, but you hope until the end. Then you know.

"For sure with Peter Sagan, on a parcours like this, very technical, he can do amazing stuff on his bike. And he also has the legs to go for it. You never win before the race is really over. Now I'm really relieved."

Küng appeared to get bored sitting in the hot seat at the finish of the time trial. He warmed down after his ride, ate some recovery food and eventually pulled out a book to pass the time.

"I had to wait for two and a half hours and so I was really happy to finally win it. First I did my cool down because that’s important for tomorrow and the stages to come. Then I had my book with me because I didn't want to watch all the time because I was already nervous. So I took time to have a read."
