All the hard work we did in the last 4 months (motorpacing, rotating and paceline training) finally paid off.
We checked the profile the day before the race and also today we got to the start a few hours before the start. All the riders were very motivated for this TTT prologue, they were riding the corners several times (checking all the corners, cobbles, and all different positions).
We decided that Jan will start first and he will go all out until the first corner, then Vaclav rides all flat, slightly downhill parts and then Filippo all the way until the finish.
They all did a very good job today and everything went perfect.
We got second place which I hope will make them very motivated and confident for the next stages.
I felt a bit of pressure before the start because I was doing the first part of the really short TTT. It was really technical so I had to make sure everyone could follow but still go as hard as possible. After this the other guys finished it off on the second part of the course.
