Omega Pharma-QuickStep Takes Gold

By Cor Vos on September 16, 2012

Belgian team Omega Pharma-QuickStep and German squad Specialized-Lululemon have claimed Sunday the first gold medals on offer in the 2012 UCI World Championships, in the Limburg Province (Netherlands), after clinching victories in the men’s and women’s trade teams time trials. The fastest in all the checkpoints on the rolling 53.2 kilometre men’s course, Omega Pharma-QuickStep were also the most consistent. One of the few squads to keep their six man squad together from start to finish as the race ducked and dived through the stunning Limberg countryside, the sight of all six riders still working together as they crowned the last challenge, the Cauberg. Second, just three seconds behind were BMC Racing, whilst Orica-GreenEdge ousted out long-standing provisional leaders Liquigas-Cannondale to claim bronze.
