Movistar Team confirms their place within the best TTT squads in the world in the second day of the Giro - only beaten (9 seconds) by Sky on a technical course in Ischia


An extraordinary performance from Movistar Team put them in 2nd place of stage two in the 2013 Giro d'Italia, a 17.4-kilometer team time trial in the Isola d'Ischia where the telephone squad confirmed their quality after several great outings in this speciality -winners in the 2012 Vuelta, 6th in the TTT Worlds, 2nd in last March's Tirreno-Adriatico-. Eusebio Unzué's squad, directed on Italian soil by José Luis Arrieta and Chente García Acosta, made a magnificent effort to finish just nine seconds slower than the winners, British team Sky. The Spanish team was fastest through the intermediate point with two seconds of advantage and kept the pace superbly in the second part of the route, with five riders coming together to the finish: Intxausti, Capecchi, Dowsett, José Herrada and 'maglia azzurra' Giovanni Visconti.
