interview04.07.2015Stage 1- Utrecht / Utrecht

Triple world champion for individual time trial, Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step) said before the race: “It's obviously my number one goal here. Everybody is talking about me and Tom Dumoulin but there are lots of other favourites, Cancellara, Rohan Dennis… But it's true that Tom came close a few times but I hope I will again end up on top this time. I checked the course several times and I guess I know it pretty well by now. It might look a little short but I like it a lot. I hope the weather stays stable even though if shouldn't affect us too much as most of the favourites are starting together.”

  • Rohan Dennis comes of age

    The first yellow jersey of the 102nd Tour de France is Australian. Rohan Dennis of BMC Racing Team was the only rider to complete the 13.8km course in less than fifteen minutes. He outclassed the three favorites Tony Martin, Fabian Cancellara and Tom Dumoulin and rode the fastest individual time trial ever at the Tour de France.
