We shall start, though, with proof that 6-hour rides on Zwift really do work. The 5 day Volta Valenciana began last week with a 10km individual time trial. The winner? Edvald Boasson Hagen. The Norwegian hit the headlines at the start of this year for his epic sessions on an indoor cycling treadmill, but that dedication has clearly paid off.
And it’s the best form he’s had in a time trial for quite some time – according to Cillian Kelly, that’s only the 2nd time trial win that he’s had in the last 9 years if you exclude his national championships.
Greg Van Avermaet opened up his account for the CCC team with a win on day 3 – and didn’t he do it in fine style. After a tough finale, he kicked to the line with Trentin on his wheel, but the Italian couldn’t even get level with him, let alone get past him. Before that day, GvA had said he was ready for the opening classic, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, and the proof was in the pudding – watch out for him in 3 weeks time.
