Lennard Kämna tops strong BORA – hansgrohe performance in Tirreno-Adriatico opening TT to take second place

The pancake flat course of the opening TT at Tirreno-Adriatico was well known as it was used also in previous editions of the race. Pouring rain in the beginning made the race a bit tricky while conditions got better towards the end. F. Ganna proved to be the favorite, taking the win with a time of 12:28 in the end. BORA – hansgrohe showed a strong performance overall with Vlasov and Hindley putting some distance between them and other GC favorites while Lennard Kämna rode an incredible race to take second place in the end.

From the finish line

“I am happy with the race today. Happy with my ride but also how my body felt. I took a conservative approach on the way out and really pushed on the way back. This course is for sure not ideal for me, totally flat, so I’ll take this result for sure.” – Jai Hindley

“I didn’t expect such a strong ride today. I am more than happy with my TT. The pacing was actually quite easy as the wind was steady. I kept some energy for the last part and especially my last kilometer was fast. We have to see how my shape will be in the mountains but after today I can be confident for sure. In general, we have a strong GC team here and we want to do well.” – Lennard Kämna
