Tirreno-Adriatico - Race Overview

Mitchelton-SCOTT rounded out a week of ups and downs at Tirreno-Adriatico that included two second places and a memorable stage five victory for Adam Yates and fifth overall with Michael Hepburn in sixth on the final stage individual time trial.

The Australian outfit finished with three riders in the top ten on today’s time trial with Hepburn in sixth followed by Jack Bauer in seventh and Luke Durbridge in eighth behind stage winner Rohan Dennis (BMC-Racing-Team).

Michal Kwiatkowski (Team-Sky) took the overall victory and despite some misfortune in stage two Mitchelton-SCOTT came back to finish the race strongly with Yates’s fifth place the team’s best ever result.

Giro d’Italia stage winner Caleb Ewan missed out on the sprint finishes but worked hard for the team alongside Slovenian champion Luka Mezgec with both riders now looking ahead to Milan-San Remo at the weekend.
