Thomas and Sky happy with time trial performance

For a few minutes in Denmark yesterday it looked as if Team Sky's Geraint Thomas might walk away with the Giro d'Italia's maglia rosa and clinch an opening individual time trial win for the second time in as many races. His super-quick time of 10:35 for the 8.7km course catapulted him to the head of the standings, only for him to see BMC's Taylor Phinney relegate him into second spot and deny him a repeat victory after his success at the Tour de Romandie late last month.
