Michal Kwiatkowski takes 53rd Tirreno-Adriatco Victory

kwiatkowski Tirreno Adriatico

Team Sky’s man Michal Kwiatkowski has just taken the overall victory at this season’s Tirreno-Adriatico tour after the final stage on Tuesday, Mar. 13, 2018.

 

Yesterday’s victory came right after Kwiatkowski’s latest triumph at this year’s Volta ao Algarve event which took place in February.

 

The 2014 road race champion of the world was able to be the fastest from all the other contenders in the 10-km stage that took place in San Benedetto Del Tronto.

 

Team Sky’s rider begun the final time trial stage with a three-second advantage over BMC’s Damiano Caruso but ended up pushing his overall advantage to 24 seconds.

 

 

The final stage saw BMC’s Rohan Dennis taking the victory with a time of 11 minutes and 14 seconds, 20 seconds faster than the overall champion Kwiatkowski.

 

On the other hand, four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome, who was forced to stay out of the running in the GC standings after several mechanical problems he faced during the week, ended the stage at the same time as winner Kwiatkowski.
