Specialized-lululemon dominate World Cup team time trial

Specialized-Lululemon stormed victory in Vargarda on a warm and slightly breezy evening. The squad finished the required four of their six starting riders in a tactical ride in which they maintained their momentum throughout the 42.5km test.

Orica-AIS presented by GreenEDGE were second fastest. They had led to the first time check in Herrljunga (16.4km), with World Time Trial Champion, Judith Arndt, leading the team fluidly through the technical twists and turns of the turning point. The team's three second advantage over Specialized-Lululemon became a ten second deficit at the point of return to Vargarda, with 31.9km covered. At the finish, Specialized-Lululemon were 29 seconds ahead.
