They could have grouped the favorites better to limit the chances of weather deciding the outcome.

it's decided by draw:

The starting order of the team time trial stage shall be determined by a drawing due to take place on Tuesday, March 6, during the technical meeting.

Should the field of competitors include the winner of the last edition, then his team will start at the last place.

Starts will occur in identical five-minute intervals.

Team timing will be calculated on the fourth rider arrived; the other riders of the team will be granted the recorded time upon their passing the finishing line.

In the event of an accident during the last kilometer, the provisions of article 2.6.028 of the U.C.I. Regulations shall apply.

and (as you can see above) it's now the time of the 4th rider over the line that counts, not the 5th anymore (as it was with 8 starters per team)
