World Championships in Qatar started with the team time trial where Etixx – Quick – Step conquered the silver BMC Racing Team and the bronze Orica – BikeExchange. Our Thanks goes to Kittel, Martin, Terpstra, Jungels, Lampaert and Vermot. The course took 40 kilometers, however sections were very technical, with several roundabouts and sharp curves. High temperatures did not make it easy for riders, but due to the kilometers trained and being confident of success, they rode first.  During the era of team time trials at the UCI Road World Championships, the Etixx team has reconquered the title for the third time.
