Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma QuickStep) slipped out of the Maglia Rosa almost as quickly as he slipped it on has former team Sky produced the winning performance in the 17.4km team trial on the Island of Ischia. The new leader of the Giro is second year pro Scicilan Salvatore Puccio. Sky went nine seconds faster than second-placed Movistar with Astana in third at 14 seconds.

Bradley Wiggins lies in second place overall which puts early pressure on the favourite. The result placed five Team Sky riders in the top five overall, with Puccio heading Sir Bradley Wiggins, Sergio Henao, Dario Cataldo and Rigoberto Uran – all five riders crossing the line together at the finish to stage two.

The first time on Ischia in 54 years at the Giro, the stage marked the second time Team Sky have claimed the pink jersey after Wiggins in 2010, and was also the second consecutive team time trial victory for the team after success in April at the Giro del Trentino.

Omega Pharma Quickstep placed 17th of the 23 teams at 48 seconds but Mark Cavendish has the consolation of the Red Points Jersey.
