Klöden and Machado One and Three in Trentino
It was win number 12 for Team RadioShack on Tuesday with Andreas Klöden (35) winning the opening time trial by one second in the opening stage of the four-day Giro del Trentino. Klöden’s time of 15:24 on the 13.4km course was one second faster than Adriano Malori (Lampre-ISD) and 8-seconds faster than teammate Tiago Machado. It’s a strong start of the season for the German rider, chalking up his fourth victory in the 2011 racing season.

“I didn’t start too fast as I knew there was a small but steep 500 meter hill at the end,” said the victorious Klöden. “I wanted to save some forces for the last 4-5 kilometers. That plan worked out fine. Malori was better at the intermediate split time, but then I opened up my ‘turbo chargers’. (Team Director) José Azevedo guided me around the corners and gave me the split times of Machado and Malori. I knew exactly what I had to do. This is nice again. I came to Trentino to try to win this TT. I have the leader’s jersey now. Of course we will try to keep it, but that will not be not so easy. The Giro d’Italia favorites are here and I am sure they want to do some big tests here. It will be a hard stage race. But… we will defend that jersey,” he concluded.

José Azevedo added, “The Thursday and Friday stages are especially hard. But I see that our team is ready for it. I am happy not only with the result of Andreas but also from our other riders. This all looks good. Today it was a pleasure to be in the car behind Andreas. In my eyes he did a perfect TT. He never misjudged a corner and he used all his energy at exactly the right moment. He is an example.”

Klöden is no stranger to the one-second victory in Trentino. In 2009 he won in Arco by the same narrow margin to teammate Jani Brajkovic.
