Tirreno-Adriatico - Race Overview

Second in the team time trial. Two in the top five on stage three. Tenth in the individual time trial. While ORICA-GreenEDGE may have narrowly missed out on the results they chased, it was undeniably a good week for the Australian outfit in preparation for the start of the sprint classics.

“We came here with three goals – and we ticked several boxes. It would have been ideal if we would have won the team time trial but instead we were second against our old arch-rivals in Quick-Steap. Our boys did a strong rider Technically, they got it all right, and we have to be happy about that. We pulled a few riders that were borderline with sickness, but I think we got them out in time,” White added. “We’ve built some great momentum coming into our big goals over the new few weeks.” - Sport Director Matt White
