Tejay Van Garderen (BMC) extended his lead in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge after smashing the 10-mile, stage 5 time trial in Vail in 25 minutes, 1 second. The leaderboard shows Van Garderen with a 1:30 lead over second place, his teammate Mathias Frank, and a 1:42 advantage on Tom Danielson (Garmin-Sharp).
The second most impressive ride of the day came from young Andrew Talanksy (Garmin), who finished the TT only 4 seconds behind Van Garderen. Disappointing performances from Chris Froome (+3:07) and Michael Rogers (+2:01) proved that, of the elite time trialists in the field, only Van Garderen had the legs to win the day.
