"Everybody was really impressive today, but Rohan Dennis absolutely carried us. He is kind of on another level. But it was great that all six of us stayed together until close to the end."

The BMC Racing Team led through every time check Sunday on the way to capturing its second straight UCI world team time trial championship.

 

Powering through the streets of Richmond, Virginia, the BMC Racing Team averaged 54.969 kilometers an hour to best Etixx-Quick Step by 11.35 seconds. Movistar Team finished third, 30.11 seconds off the winning time of 42:07.97.

Members of the winning team were Rohan Dennis, Silvan Dillier, Stefan Küng, Daniel Oss, Taylor Phinney, Manuel Quinziato.

Phinney, who only recently returned to racing after being sidelined by a major injury for 62 weeks, called it "a nearly perfect" performance.

"Everybody was really impressive today, but Rohan Dennis absolutely carried us," Phinney said. "He is kind of on another level. But it was great that all six of us stayed together until close to the end. I tried to be conservative in the beginning and then give it some gas toward the finish. But that is always easier said than done."

Dennis, Dillier, Oss and Quinziato won their second gold medals after being part of last year's team. Peter Velits, who was part of the winning team time trial squad in 2012, 2013 and 2014, was the team's first alternate.

"Peter would easily fit into anybody else's team and he was gracious enough to come here knowing he would be the reserve," Phinney said. "He was really helpful for us as a road captain in training."

Dennis, winner of the opening time trial at this year's Tour de France and a past holder of the world hour record, said the victory was even better than last year.

"Last year when we won, it was a bit of a surprise to a lot of people," Dennis said. "To win again really puts our mark on the team time trial on a world level. It is pretty big for BMC." 

In addition to winning on Sunday, the BMC Racing Team also captured team time trials at the Vuelta a España, the Tour de France and the Critérium du Dauphiné this year.

BMC Racing Team Trainer Marco Pinotti said he was initially worried the squad started too fast. At the first time check at 10 km, the BMC Racing Team led Etixx-Quick Step by nearly four seconds, ORICA-GreenEDGE by nearly five and Movistar Team by almost nine.

"It was fast and I did not expect to be that much in front of the other teams," Pinotti said. "The hardest part was the last part, with a headwind and a slight uphill. The guys kept riding hard and lost a bit. But the other teams were losing even more time. I was sure it was going to be close. When it is close, it is not only about the skill and form, it is about mental strength. The guys kept their focus and this a big achievement."
