EF Education First team leader Dani Martinez is in the driver's seat at the Tour Colombia 2.1 on Tuesday, winning the opening team time trial by eight seconds over Deceuninck-QuickStep and 10 seconds over the Team Sky squad of defending champion Egan Bernal.

Rigoberto Uran, whose team said previously would be working for Martinez this week, got the honour of the first leader's jersey in the race, followed in GC by his teammates Martinez, Phinney and Craddock.

"This win signifies a big responsibility, the most important thing as I have always told them is to enjoy doing things with passion. We are starting this time in the Tour of Colombia very happy to be here, at home," Uran said.

The oddly shaped 14km course in downtown Medellin included long straight stretches, a short loop and one 180-degree turn. Little to no elevation gain made this one a pure power course in the dry, 26°C weather.

Team Medellin, led by Oscar Sevilla, set out first on the course and cruised across the line in 15:46, a time that would hold through 21 teams until the heavy hitters took to the course.

Deceuninck-QuickStep was the first WorldTour team on the course and went 32 seconds quicker than Medellin to take the lead. Movistar finished next but could only manage 15:50 for third place at the time.

EF Education First, resplendent in their new pink and purple kit, knocked Deceuninck-QuickStep out of the hot seat with a new best time of 15:07, going seven seconds better than the Belgian team.

UAE Team Emirates came in at 15:41 for third, with just Astana and Team Sky left on course. Astana couldn't top the American team and was unable to crack the top three, leaving EF Education First in the lead, followed by Deceuninck-QuickStep in second and Medellin third, with just Team Sky to finish.

The British powerhouse team of the defending champion Bernal also weren't able to topple EF Education First, coming in a 15:16 to take third behind Deceuninck-QuickStep.
