Astana put 14 seconds on both Team Sky and AG2R La Mondiale in the opening TTT stage of the Giro del Trentino. This puts Vincenzo Nibali in the driver’s seat contending for the overall, and puts Sky’s Mikel Landa on the back foot early on.

Valerio Agnoli pulled on the first leader’s jersey of the four-stage race.
