Tulett fifth in TT test

Giro d'Italia stage 2 (ITT): Budapest › Budapest, 9.2km

Ben Tulett put in a tremendous performance as he finished fifth in his first Grand Tour time trial in Budapest.

Tulett impressed on the technical 9.2km course which featured a tough uphill finish as he was one of four INEOS Grenadiers in the top 20 of the stage, which was won by Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange - Jayco). 

Pavel Sivakov finished 15th (+22"), Richie Porte 16th (+22") while Richard Carapaz was 19th, 28 seconds behind stage winner Yates. 

The result propels Tulett to sixth overall, 24 second behind race leader Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) who finished second the time trial to retain the maglia rosa, with Carapaz 35 seconds back in 15th place on GC.
