Another ripping day on the roads in Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico and we have the final kilometres in case you’ve missed the finishes! It was all about the sprints in both Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico yesterday. Lampre’s Davide Cimolai took PN’s 5th stage, beating Europcar’s Bryan Coquard and Orica’s Michael Matthews. Etixx’s Michal Kwiatkowski kept his one-second lead over Sky’s Richie Porte in the overall.
The eternally second Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) finally went one up by winning TA’s stage 3 uphill sprint, ahead of the new eternally second Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Strade winner Zdenek Stybar (Etixx) – three riders who will almost certainly figure in the next few weeks in Belgium. GVA takes the leader jersey, two seconds ahead of Sagan.
