After yesterday’s turbulent day of racing that saw half the team hit the deck, ORICA-GreenEDGE has fought on in a day of recovery on stage three of Tirreno-Adriatico in Italy.
Dane Magnus Cort was the team’s top performer, as the 22-year-old neo-pro continued to test the waters in the WorldTour, good enough for 28th.
BMC Racing’s Greg Van Avermaet won the stage that was characterised by a kilometre uphill kick to the line and moved into the race lead whilst ORICA-GreenEDGE’s general classification rider Adam Yates was safely in the bunch and given same time.
“All of the injured boys got through unscathed and live to fight another day tomorrow,” sport director Matt White said.
