Volta a Catalunya 2017: BMC wins TTT - Movistar penalised for pushing

bmc - Volta a Catalunya 2017: BMC wins TTT - Movistar penalised for pushingThe 2nd stage in the Volta a Catalunya is an extremely long team time trial. Albeit the route amounts to 41.3 kilometres, it looked as if the race boiled down to 2 seconds with Movistar besting BMC. But after a good night's sleep the organisation penalised Movistar for pushing and Ben Hermans is the new leader with Froome 0'44" in arrears. Contador is 1'13" down on the leaders jersey.
