  • Chris Froome met with the media this week ahead of the Giro start

Froome's sample showed elevated levels of asthma drug salbutamol, but the 32-year-old has insisted he is not guilty of any wrongdoing.

Dennis then held his breath further as Froome and defending champion Dumoulin rolled off of the start ramp.

Dennis (BMC Racing) was just two seconds back in second place, with Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Soudal) taking third only few hundredths of a second shy of the Australian's time.

Further down the field were Irish duo Nicolas Roche and Sam Bennett - 74 and 79 seconds slower than Dumoulin, respectively.

The world time-trial champion now knows he should be able to put serious amounts of time into all his rivals for the general classification in the Giro's second time-trial, a longer, flatter effort at the start of the third week on May 22.

Froome suffered cuts and grazing and duly completed the 9.7-kilometre route 37 seconds slower than Dumoulin, who clocked a time of 12 minutes and two seconds to take the Maglia Rosa. "It was a very challenging, very technical course but for me it was okay".

The last of the 101st Giro's three stages in Israel will take the riders Sunday from Beersheba through the Negev Desert to the Red Sea resort of Eilat, a ride of 229km.

Astana team leader Miguel Angel Lopez also crashed in training but the Colombian will compete as well.
