Etixx-Quickstep looking for seconds along Worlds TTT course

Powered by triple individual world time trial champion Tony Martin, the Etixx-Quickstep squad won the first two UCI Road World Championship team time trials in 2012 and 2013, but their storied rivalry with Orica-GreenEdge took a new twist when BMC Racing snatched the world title by a rather large margin of victory in Ponferrada last year. Now the Belgian team is looking to regain the team time trial (TTT) world title in Richmond, and with a shorter course and increased competition, they are expecting the race to come down to seconds, or less.
