Final KM: Tirreno Adriatico Stage 2

“What a difference a day makes, twenty four little hours”  – and never more so than at Tirreno Adriatico.

Stage 2: Camaiore to Pomarance, 228km

Geraint Thomas (Sky) put the yesterday’s nightmare behind him and rampaged time trial style to solo victory. Taking full advantage of Sky’s aggression on the final climb and aided by the faffing about of his three breakaway companions, the Welshman roared over the line with 9secs to spare. Second place Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) led the chasing pack with Bora-Hansgrohe’s Peter Sagan popping up from nowhere to take third. Defending champion Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) is back in the blue leader’s jersey, he’s not willing to surrender the trident just yet!

Highlights…

Happiness…

Quicksteper Bob Jungels animated the final climb and ended the day as best young rider…

Double blow for Orica-Scott as Caleb Ewan and his wingman Roger Kluge are forced to retire. Heal fast guys.

By the power of the TRIDENT!!

We’ll leave you with this musical interlude…
