Tirreno - Adriatico
Stage 6: Castelraimondo to Cepagatti - Stage Details

Australian sprinting sensation Caleb Ewan won the race for the line behind the day's late attack to place fifth on the penultimate stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.

The stage was won by Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) after following a late move by Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) in the last kilometre of the race. The win puts Van Avermaet into the lead in the overall general classification heading into the final day of racing tomorrow.

Despite missing out on the opportunity to contest a full sprint, sports director Matthew White praised the team for trying to take control of the race.

”It’s a shame Caleb didn’t get the chance to sprint for the win, we were doing great a job controlling things for most of the day," White said. "The crash on the last circuit changed the shape of the race completely.”
