With a time of 15’58” over 13.7km, BMC dominated Quick-Step Floors and Team Sunweb with a margin of six seconds. Chris Froome and Team Sky took the fourth place ahead of most of their rivals for the general classification. BMC had already won the ITT in 2015 but Dennis is the first Australian rider to wear the red jersey since Michael Matthews kept it for three days in 2014.
