Yates went one better than finishing second on stage three as he won stage five

Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski pictured after winning the Tirreno-Adriatico in Italy today.

Australian Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) was the fastest on the 10-km course around San Benedetto Del Tronto as he set off in dry conditions, unlike the top favourites, to clock 11 minutes 14 seconds.

"We always said that we'd decide after Tirreno-Adriatico if I'd go to Milan-Sanremo but things are now looking good after two stage wins".

"I don't actually know the final result, just that I won, and that's all that matters", Kwiatkowski said. My coach said it's normal that I struggled in longer days like the Scarponi memorial stage (stage 5).

After the sixth leg of the race and with a total time of 25:21.22, Kwiatkowski retained a three-second lead over Italian Damiano Caruso and a 23-second lead over Spaniard Mikel Landa.

The Pole found himself as Sky's leading contender when team-mate Geraint Thomas suffered a mechanical issue on Saturday's fourth stage.

With Porte ill, Van Garderen at Paris-Nice (where he abandoned on stage one after crashing into a car), and Dennis seemingly short of form despite focusing on the Giro this year, Caruso seized his opportunity with a strong second place finish overall. The overall victor said he was nervous because of the rain falling prior to his start, but felt well during the TT.
