Under brilliant blue skies in Calpe, Spain, the Garmin-Transitions team spent much of Thursday on their time trial bikes at training camp.

With the arrival of the Tour Down Under squad from Australia, the entire team was present to conduct multiple laps of a five-kilometre circuit to test out their new Felt time trial bikes and wheels from Mavic.

The American ProTour squad is in the midst of a two-week training camp on the coast of Spain.
