PLAYERS: Bradley Wiggins
Bradley Wiggins led Sky to victory Tuesday in a team time trial at the Giro del Trentino, as the Tour de France winner prepares for the upcoming Giro d'Italia. In the second of two short stages to open the four-day race, Sky clocked 15 minutes, 20.64 seconds over the 8.8-mile route. Astana, led by Italy's Vincenzo Nibali - seen as Wiggins' biggest rival in the two Italian races - finished second, 12.77 seconds behind. Earlier, French rider Maxime Bouet edged Josef Cerny of the Czech Republic to win the opening 80-mile leg. Wiggins and Nibali finished in the main pack in the morning, both 6:51 back. Cerny held the overall lead after the day. Wiggins was 12th, 6:03 back, and Nibali was 17th, 6:16 back.
