The double European champion time trial was seven seconds slower than Dennis, who also last year, after the first stage (team time trial) the red sweater might attract.
Sunday is the second stage on the program, a ride over 163,5 km between Marbella and Caminito del Rey. The summit arrival comes after a climb of 5.1 km with an average gradient of 3.3 percent.
