Dumoulin and Sunweb aiming high in team time trial

Tom Dumoulin gained time on Chris Froome (Team Sky), Richie Porte (BMC Racing), Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), and Nairo Quintana (Movistar) after they were delayed by crashes in the hectic finale of stage 1 of the 2018 Tour de France. Now he hopes to gain time on other overall rivals in the 35.5km team time trial around Cholet on Monday, and perhaps even take the race leader's yellow jersey.
