The 2010 cycling season last Sunday with a team time-trial along the Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq Coast Road. Organised by Greens Cycling Club, the event was sponsored by Greens Supermarket and BBB Bike Parts.

Teams of four riders were set off at two-minute intervals to cover a distance of 40km. The leading four cycling clubs fielded their best riders in order to challenge for victory.
