Gazprom-RusVelo win stage 1b team time trial at Coppi e Bartali

Ershov takes the overall lead

Gazprom RusVelo's four-man team of Alexander Serov, Artur Ershov, Artem Ovechkin and Kirill Sveshnikov triumphed at the stage 1b team time trial at Coppi e Bartali on Thursday afternoon. The Russian team won the 13.3km event in 15:15, beating American team Rally Cycling and Unieuro.

Ershov took the overall race lead off of Southeast's Manuel Belletti's back, after the Italian won the morning stage 1a.

The team time trial held an interesting format whereby each team lined up with split squads of four riders, for a total of 50 teams out of the starting house.

Rally's B team of Jesse Anthony, Evan Huffman, Pierrick Naud and Danny Pate held the fastest time at the end, until Gazprom-RusVelo knocked them out of the hot seat to take the win by 12 seconds. Unieuro Wilier's team of Davide Plebani, Giovani Carboni, Mauro Finetto and Alessandro Malaguti finished third at 13 seconds back.
