Final KM: Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 6

Last chance for the sprinters in the Race of the Two Seas.

Tirreno-Adriatico Stage 6: Numana to Fano, 153km

It was fast, chaotic and ended in victory number two for Marcel Kittel and his Katusha-Alpecin train. Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) lost position as he somehow avoided getting tangled in a crash with 8km to go, time-trialled 4km to get back on, bunny hopped over traffic islands to move himself further up and sprinted in for second. Max Richeze (Quick-Step Floors) rounded out the podium. The GC podium remains unchanged with Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) on the top step.  However, BMC ensured Damiano Caruso picked up a crucial 1sec bonus which puts him at only +3secs from the maglia azzurra. 


The 10km TT is going to be a thriller…

The World Champion was on one of those days #SupermanSagan…
