Tour of Utah Prologue

I'm resuming my crash course in DS'ing, under the tutelage of Biagio Conte during the Tour of Utah. Today was the prologue at Olympic Park at Deer Valley. Things got off to an 'easy' start today with a short hillclimb. Just over 2 km, Colombian Sergio Luis Henao Montoya stormed to the win. I chased first Paolo Longo Borghini up the hill, followed by Tim Duggan and Ted King. Tim did best of our guys with a 4'26". He's motivated for a good overall or the right break, but keep an eye out for Elia Viviani and Davide Cimolai in the sprint finishes - they're fresh off the track where they scored some European championship gold medals.
