Catalunya: Mollema 10th in snow-shortened stage 4

Bauke Mollema sprinted to 10th place in the snow-shortened stage four at the Volta a Catalunya Thursday, while teammates Alberto Contador and Jarlinson Pantano also arrived with the reduced bunch and there were no changes in the top 10 of the general classification. With the first 60-kilometers of stage four annulled to snow, the abridged 136-kilometer course played out in a fast but tranquil manner for Trek-Segafredo until the final category two climb, a stinger that topped out less than 13 kilometers from home.

Catalunya: Contador 7th on La Molina stage

Alberto Contador crossed the line in seventh place for the grueling La Molina finish of stage three in Volta a Catalunya, moving him into seventh place in the overall classification. On paper, the 188-kilometer race with three category-one climbs jammed into the end looked to be a stage to shake up the general classification, but La Molina – ascended twice in the final 35 kilometers – was gradual with too much headwind and only steepened in the last kilometer.

Trek-Segafredo fourth in crucial team time trial

The team time trial heightens the importance of a strong and well-rounded team when searching for the overall win, and the TTT in stage two at the Volta a Catalunya, arguably one of the most decisive in years at a lengthy 41.3 kilometers, demonstrated its prominence in the weeklong race. While Movistar eked out the win over pre-race favorite BMC Racing by two seconds and 46 seconds over Team Sky, Trek-Segafredo put in a sound ride to finish fourth (+1'15") – still suffering significant time gaps to some rivals, but avoiding complete disaster, which, in a tricky team test of this length, is always possible.
