Omega Pharma-QuickStep defended its title and took revenge on Orica-GreenEDGE in today's World Championships team time trial. Three months after losing by a fraction of a second in the Tour de France, Omega Pharma won in Florence by 0.81 seconds.

"It was a thriller. It was good for the cycling fans and for us now that it's the other way around," sports director, Tom Steels said in a press conference. "We know what it is like to sit there in the hot seat and lose it. We know how it feels to take it now - it's much better."
