Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski secures overall victory at Tirreno-Adriatico

Adam Yates times attack to perfection to win Stage 5

The 2014 road race world champion was the fastest of the general classification contenders in the 10-kilometre race against the clock in San Benedetto Del Tronto.

Poland's Michal Kwiatkowski, center, victor of the Tirreno Adriatico cycling race, celebrates on the podium with second placed Damiano Caruso, left, and third placed Britain's Geraint Thomas, in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

12 months ago Michal Kwiatkowski won Milan-San Remo having finished second at the Volta ao Algarve and been on domestique duty for Geraint Thomas at Tirreno-Adriatico, so imagine how high his confidence must be having won both races overall in 2018.

The Polish rider, who appears in great form four days before the first Monument (top classic) of the season, Saturday's Milan-San Remo, beat Italian Damiano Cruso of BMC Racing by 24 seconds.

"When there was the crash with Fernando Gaviria, I was just on the left side of the Quick-Step riders".

"I had to go with lower tire pressure".

Mikel Landa (Movistar) started the day in a podium place, 23 seconds off the race lead, but his time of 12.24 dropped him to sixth overall and one minute 13 seconds behind the GC victor. "I feel sorry for him, but we remained focused on our goal", Kittel said.

LottoNL-Jumbo's Jos van Emden was second on the stage, four seconds behind Dennis, with Team Sky's Jonathan Castroviejo a further four seconds back in third.

"To be honest I was nervous about it", Dennis said.

"I didn't want to lose Tirreno-Adriatico by a few seconds without trying to get the time bonus in the intermediate sprint", Kwiatkowski said.
