Kwiatkowski leads Tirreno-Adriatico with 1 stage left

Kwiatkowski leads Tirreno-Adriatico with 1 stage left”

Geraint Thomas, who led the race before losing time and with it his leader's jersey during Saturday's stage, again endured bad luck on the road after puncturing in the closing kilometres.

The German completed the stage in 3:49:54, beating Bora-Hansgrohe's Peter Sagan (Slovakia) and Quick-Step Floors' Maximiliano Richeze (Argentina) into second and third respectively.

One of the favorites, Fernando Gaviria, touched the wheel of another cyclist and went down, taking others with him.

Sagan was also involved in the crash, siting directly on the wheel of Gaviria, yet miraculously managed to stay upright, finishing second on the stage.

The second favourite might come as something of a surprise for anyone paying attention to yesterday's stage at Tirreno-Adriatico, with most bookies still offering odds of around 6/1 on Fernando Gaviria, despite the Colombian sprinter requiring surgery on a broken hand after a crash meaning that he won't be on the start line in Milan. "I feel sorry for him, but we remained focused on our goal", Kittel said.

"The team set me up perfectly before the last climb so I could ride away - all I had to do was attack and hold on the bunch". We controlled the race.

Germany's Marcel Kittel receives the kisses of the race's hostesses after winning the 6th stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race, from Numana to Fano, Italy, Monday, March 12, 2018.

Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky), with only a three-second lead in the general classification over BMC's Damiano Caruso, tried to pad his advantage in the final intermediate sprint, only to have BMC throw two more formidable sprinters in his path, Greg Van Avermaet and Patrick Bevin.

Thomas had been the overall leader after stage three but he lost time after having a mechanical problem towards the end of stage four of the eight-stage race. "I didn't make it but, at the end of the day, we have to be very happy with the stage and keep focus on tomorrow's time trial for a ideal end".
