Terrible start for Contador
Par for course this year against Froome and Sky...

Lose time in an ITT or TTT and play catchup for the rest of the race.
Seems that way, I thought Trek would have gone a bit better here though; they seem to have more rouleurs in their squad than most teams, who are just stacked with climbers.

I thought they would have been a bit better too, they seemed a little disorganized in the last 2k and if it were not for Contador trying to keep them together their time would have been much worse.

So who's the team leader for BMC? Or do they plan to make it up as they go along?

I guess they'll find out soon enough, come stage 3.
If you ask TJ it's him but if you ask the team it's Dennis for now.

We'll see in a couple weeks how it shakes out.
