BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Dutchman Mike Teunissen clung on to the yellow jersey for another day as his Jumbo-Visna team powered to victory in the second stage of the Tour de France on Sunday — a 27.6-km team time trial around the streets of Brussels.
It had looked as though Team Ineos, with defending champion Geraint Thomas leading them home, had done enough but Jumbo-Visna, the last team to start, went quicker.
They roared across the line next to the city’s iconic Atomium in 28 minutes 58 seconds, 20 seconds faster than Ineos.
The Deceuninck Quick Step team were a further second back.
