Sky plans early start for Vuelta team time trial recon

Sky, Tour de France 2011 stage two TTT

Team Sky say they could well have a fairly early start on Saturday morning to try and ride over as much of the Vuelta a Espana team time trial course as possible well with good time to rest up again before the event itself.

The Vuelta organisers say roads are not due to be closed fully until 3pm, when the teams can ride over the course. The race will get underway two hours later, around 5pm. The last team is due to finish at 6.45pm.
