Hunter stays in touch

Tour de France stage winner Robbie Hunter of South Africa finished within a minute of the winner in the first stage of the Giro del Trentino in Italy.

Barloword’s Hunter finished 58sec behind winner Andreas Kloden of Germany in the 16.3 kilometre time trial from Torbole to Arco .

Kloden, riding for the Astana team, was timed at 18min 21sec.

A total of 161 riders started the event, which is scheduled to finish on Saturday.

Kl├Âden was not originally scheduled to participate in the Giro del Trentino. He was to do the Tour of Romandie instead, but when organisers axed the time trial, he opted for the Italian race.

The race is part of the build up to the Giro d’Italia.
