BMC in perfect formation

The race: BMC became repeat world champions in the team time trial. The 2014 and now 2015 champs blasted along the course at an average of 55.275 km/hr.

Sky, having crashed in training, finished ninth. An even bigger disappointment was Tinkoff-Saxo, who finished dead last more than eight minutes slower than BMC. Michael Rogers and Michael Valgren fell because they touched wheels and the team waited for them. Here's how Tinkoff-Saxo described the fall:

Tinkoff-Saxo’s ambitions at the World Championships Team Time Trial took a tumble, as Michael Valgren and Michael Rogers crashed just before the second split time. Both riders have sustained significant skin wounds but were able to fight their way to the finish line in Richmond with their teammates, fortunately staying clear of any major injuries.
