Tirreno-Adriatico concluded today with a ten kilometre individual time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto with Adam Yates the best placed rider for ORICA-GreenEDGE in 19th position on the overall general classification.
The race has not been without incident, when the decision to cancel Sunday's mountainous Queen stage because of snow led to unrest and frustration from a few of the participating teams. For ORICA-GreenEDGE, the week spent racing across Italy has given the team a valuable workout going into the Spring Classics.
Sports director Matthew White was satisfied with how the race unfolded and praised the attitude and effort of the team.
“We came in with two goals for the race, one was to win a stage and the other was to support Adam in the general classification," White said.
