Who else would win a time trial at a big stage but world time trial champ Fillipo Gana.Dont underestimate the power of a partisan crowd though, great to see.First Maglia Rosa going to the Italian in Turin.Ineos Grenadiers off to a flyer. Gana finishing in 8 minutes 47sec averaging a kilometer per minute almost in a incredible display of leg strength.

Another Italian Eduardo Affini of Jumbo Vista finished second plus ten seconds on Fillipo’s time with team mate Tobias Foss getting the bronze finish plus 13 seconds from the best time. Gana didn’t get the best of preparation for the Giro, he didn’t do all that well at the Romandie last week.A rider who had a good week out in Switzerland last week, Remi Cavagna couldn’t carry that form to Italy this week.
