Stage 6: Rieti to Porto Sant'Elpidio - Stage Details

Danish neo-pro Magnus Cort has sprinted to an impressive fourth place on stage six of the Tirreno-Adriatico, his first WorldTour race.

On the second consecutive day of challenging conditions, Cort contested for stage honours from a reduced bunch after a large part of the peloton lost contact mid-race. Tinkoff-Saxo’s Peter Sagan won the stage.

“Firstly, there was quite a big selection and there was a few key sprinters who weren’t there so he has done well to make that group,” sport director Matt Whitesaid of Cort.
