BMC out-gunned last year's winners Omega Pharma-Quick Step and Orica-GreenEdge for the team time trial world title today in Ponferrada, Spain. The men in red and black clocked a time of 1:03:29 to knock Trek out of the Shimano themed hot seat and in doing so set a target that no one else could match.

"It's incredible, the team was nervous coming into this because a couple of years we were second by a few seconds," BMC's Tejay van Garderen explained.
