Leopard Trek's Tour of Spain time trial triumph


Leopard Trek produced a flawless run to edge out Liquigas and claim the opening team time trial in the Tour of Spain in Benidorm on Saturday.

Denmark’s Jakob Fuglsang led his teammates over the line of the 13.5-km trek and completed the race in an impressive time of 16 minutes and 30 seconds.

Liquigas, who led the Luxembourg-based team by one second at the intermediate check, had to settle for second place after finishing four seconds off the pace.

Sunday’s second stage takes the riders 174 kilometres from La Nucia to Playas de Orihuela.
