The Race: By winning the Mens Elite Team Time Trial today, BMC stopped Omega Pharma-Quick Step at two consecutive world championships. And BMC won decisively, beating the second and third-place teams by more than a half minute.

Said jubilant BMC general manager Jim Ochowicz, "This was special because it was everybody on the team – not just the six riders. It is really all the riders and all the staff and (sponsor) Andy Rihs and all of us who have thought about this since they started this world championship three years ago. It has always been high on our priority list, it has been a goal of the team every year and now we have done it. So it is a great moment in our organization."

Team Sky with Bradley Wiggins finished a surprising fourth.

Below the results are posted action photos of every team that participated.
