BMC win Tour of Qatar team time trial

BMC wins Tour of Qatar 2013, stage two TTT

Some specific training in the south of Spain paid off for BMC as they raced to victory in the 14km stage two team time trial in the Tour of Qatar five seconds ahead of Team Sky and ten seconds quicker than Omega Pharma-Quick-Step.

Taylor Phinney was the powerhouse in the American squad but it was his teammate and countryman, stage one winner Brent Bookwalter, who retained the leader's golden jersey. Behind him, the general classification is stacked with BMC riders, with Phinney second and Britain's Adam Blythe third. Bernhard Eisel of Sky is 6th at 11 seconds.
