BMC's Van Avermaet is the Maillot Juane after team blitzs Team Time Trial

Team Time Trial experts BMC hit an average speed of 54.9km/h to edge out Team Sky by 4 seconds to seize the maillot jaaune. Greg van Avermaet was the lucky recipeint of the jersey after BMC completed the 35km course in 38'46". Third spot went to Quickstep. Overnight leader Peter Sagan was actaully dropped by his Bora-Hansgrohe teammates, perhaps in a calculated effort to save energy ahead of opportunities to win individual stages in the next few days.
