Brent's Update:

Going into a Grand Tour that starts with a time trial is always daunting as you know the percentage of racing is small, so you don’t want to spend too much energy for no reason. At the same time, we all arrived here fit and ready and doing an effort that you can be proud of is good for your confidence, morale, and motivation going into the next few days.

I think I strung together a pretty good ride today. It was a high-speed course with a few tricky parts but nothing too difficult. There were only a couple of moments when you had to be on the brakes, and the climb was only short.
