TdF: Tejay van Garderen in White

BMC press release
Tejay van Garderen finished fourth and earned best young rider honors and Philippe Gilbert was ninth as the BMC Racing Team put five riders in the top 25 in the prologue Saturday and began defense of Cadel Evans's Tour de France title.
Evans Happy To Get Things Started
Evans was the last of the 198 starters to complete the 6.4-kilometer race against the clock and finished 13th, 17 seconds off the winning time of Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Nissan). The former world road champion called it a "not good, but not bad" performance. "You never want to lose time to any GC (general classification) rider and I lost time to one, but I was sort of expecting that," Evans said, referring to prologue runner-up Bradley Wiggins (Sky Procycling). "But it's six kilometers out of 3,500 or so, so in that regard it's a small comparison. I'm happy to get things started and I'm feeling good." Van Garderen's time was 10 seconds off the winning time, while Gilbert, the Belgian national time trial champion, was three seconds slower.

Van Garderen Best On The Team
Van Garderen had one of the strongest rides in the second half of the course that wound through the streets of Liège. Only 16th at the intermediate check, he powered his BMC timemachine TM01 across the line for what was then the second-fastest time. The silver medalist at the U.S. national time trial championships said it was nice to earn best young rider honors, but it's not part of his overall plan for the three-week race. "It's an incredible feeling," he said. "I haven't gotten the adrenaline going like that coming down the start ramp since I was a junior. But we have one goal at this race and that's to get Cadel to the top step in Paris. This is a nice little treat for me and the team, but it's not really something we're aiming for."

Gilbert Happy At Home; Hincapie Makes History
After Gilbert, the BMC Racing Team placed Steve Cummings 17th (at 18 seconds) and George Hincapie 22nd (at 20 seconds). Riding in his home country, Gilbert said the support from the crowd was amazing. "Thanks to all the fans here in Liège. It was amazing," he said. "It was like the classics last year in Flèche Wallonne or Liège-Bastogne-Liège." Hincapie said the magnitude of starting a record 17th Tour de France didn't affect him until just before his start. "I got on the podium to start and it really hit me there," Hincapie said. "I should have been thinking about the effort. But I was excited. I'm really going to try and enjoy this and work my butt off the whole three weeks for Cadel."

TdF: Fabian Cancellara wins prologue and wears the first Yellow

TT and GC
1. Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Nissan) 7" 13"

2. Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) +7"
3. Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) +7"
RSNT press release :)  
No stranger to yellow jerseys, Fabian Cancellara has scorched the prologue course in Liège to win the opener in the 2012 Tour de France and lay claim to the coveted Maillot Jaune.
RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK is off to a great start in the 99th Tour de France with a dominating win in the opening prologue by Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara. Rolling out of the start house second-to-last, Cancellara posted the best time by one-second at the mid-course check point and continued to ramp up his performance to claim the win by seven-seconds. With the win comes the first yellow jersey, mirroring his win in 2004, also in Liège, Belgium, when he made his debut in the Tour de France with a prologue win and yellow jersey as a 23-year old.
Cancellara:  “I have memories today of winning 8 years ago and that was very special.  When you are 23 and win, then 8 years later do it again, it’s a very special thing for me, my family and especially for the team.  This is a great opening for our Tour.  A lot of pressure went away with this win. But we all want success and success is never easy. The whole team did a big effort.”
Second place went to Britain’s Bradley Wiggins of Sky with third to went to Sylvain Chavanel of Omega Pharma-QuickStep. At 6.4 km/4mi the course was located in the heart of Liège.  With long straight-aways giving way to serpentine turns in the last kilometer, Cancellara displayed focus and determination on the bike, winning a stage he had targeted for many months.
It was Cancellara’s fifth Tour prologue victory and his 22nd yellow jersey on Saturday, and with the Tour jersey comes the trophy of a stuffed lion:  “I was thinking of my family today, of my daughter and my wife Stefanie who is expecting our second child later this summer. I’m happy to have a lion to take home for the next baby.  Home is the basis for everything, more than my training or the team. My family is most important and I’m proud.”
The four-time world champion and reigning Olympic champion looks to the stage ahead, designed for the sprinters.  Cancellara: “Now the Tour can start for us and you will see RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK at the front. This win gives me confidence for what is coming in the days ahead, especially after my crash earlier this year.  It’s just great. I’m proud to be in yellow now. I won’t say yellow gives you wings, but I will do my best to defend the jersey.”
Sky press release

Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins underlined his Tour de France claims by taking second place behind Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Nissan) in the prologue in Liege.

Wiggins, winner of Paris-Nice, the Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine in a hugely impressive build-up to cycling's biggest event, was the 11th last rider to head out on the 6.4 kilometres course.

His target time at that point was the seven minutes and 20 seconds set by Sylvain Chavanel (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) - but at the halfway stage he was six seconds adrift.

However a superb second phase saw the Briton cross the line 0.42 seconds in front to lay down a benchmark to the final 10 starters, including reigning champion Cadel Evans (BMC Racing).

Chavanel took third, Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) was fourth and snared the young rider's jersey just ahead of Team Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen in fifth.

Bradley Wiggins, Team Sky rider:

“I'm really happy, the legs felt good and I stayed calm and relaxed.

“It's a good start and the main thing was to stay upright, safe and trouble-free - it's nice to get this first day out of the way.

“Fair play to Fabian, he's the best in the world at what he does and I think he proved that again today.”

Sean Yates, Team Sky Sports Director:

“In the grand scheme of things it was a good day and we cannot complain. Bradley set a great time on a course that doesn’t particularly suit him. We are in a great position.

“When Bradley opened it up it was plain to see that his condition is really good. It is just a question of staying out of trouble at the moment, starting tomorrow.

“It was great to see strong rides from Edvald and Froomey today and a strong start for the team across the board.”

 MORE LATER!!

TdF: prologue start time

Today is Tour de France. Not July yet but July already. Who is your favourite today? Fabian Cancellara is the mine. Maybe more a wish than a bet but I'd like a victory for him and he deserves it. It's a prologue, 6.4 m, almost flat. Tony Martin is the main opponent here, then Cadel Evans and Bradley Wiggins - they probably don't want the Yellow Jersey yet - I expect a good time by Rein Taaramae and a serious effort by Vincenzo Nibali, Robert Gesink and Jurgen Van den Broeck. I don't expect anything by Frank Schleck: not his race (a short flat TT) not his Tour (sofar: he will get engagged, no doubt).
Also not my Tour... sofar. I feel sick. I will get engagged probably... what is that? fear? I feel like a painter forced to not use a color.
