Yates resisted Thomas pressure in the time trial and won Tirreno-Adriatico


Twenty-eight-year-old Yates, despite the fact that the time trial is not one of his strengths, took a very good 18th position in the ten-kilometer ride against the chronometer. The assumptions that his biggest rival in the fight for the overall championship will be Welsh Thomas will be confirmed. The previous year’s Tour de France winner set the fourth time, which was only enough for him to move from third to second place.

The last stage winner of the Italian race was Filippo Ganna from San Benedetto del Tronto. The four-time world champion in the fighter race on the track defeated the record holder in the watch Victor Campenaerts from Belgium by 18 seconds. The two-time reigning world champion Rohan Dennis from Australia finished third with a gap of another eight seconds.

Two cyclists of the Polish CCC team did not participate in the time trial due to coronavirus. Lukasz Wišniowski had mild symptoms and a positive result on Sunday evening after the speed test, his roommate Szymon Sajnok was also withdrawn from the race for preventive reasons.

Last year’s victory at Tirren-Adriatic, which normally takes place in the spring in front of Giro d’Italia, was not defended by Primož Roglič. The Slovenian is currently fighting for an overall victory in the Tour de France, which was also postponed from its traditional term at the beginning of summer due to a coronavirus pandemic.
