Dennis wins time trial in Volta a Catalunya, fifth place for Kruijswijk | NOW

Rohan Dennis won the time trial in the Volta a Catalunya on Tuesday. Steven Kruijswijk was the best Dutchman in fifth place.

Dennis needed 22 minutes and 27 seconds for the 18 kilometer time trial. The two-time time trial world champion was five seconds ahead of the Frenchman Rémi Cavagna.

The Portuguese João Almeida is the new leader in the general classification. The Deceunick-Quick-Step rider finished third in the chrono race, almost half a minute behind Dennis.

Kruijswijk gave in 33 seconds to the Australian from INEOS Grenadiers. At 23.00, the Dutchman was a few seconds faster than INEOS leaders Richie Porte, Adam Yates and Geraint Thomas. The leader of Jumbo-Visma will ride his second race of 2021 in Catalonia, after he inconspicuously finished 29th in the final classification in Paris-Nice.

Wilco Kelderman (BORA-hansgrohe) finished twelfth, 53 seconds behind Dennis. Thijmen Arensman (sixteenth), Koen Bouwman (seventeenth) and Robert Gesink (twentieth) also had good results.
