Tirreno-Adriatico (finale)

Ecuadorian climber from Movistar Team completes first stagerace back to Europe on Italian soil, two months before the Giro; Oliveira takes 12th in San Benedetto’s TT showdown.

Slovenian superstar Primoz Roglic (TJV) took yet another GC victory in the 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico, a very tight one after overtaking Adam Yates (TJV) by just one second in the 10km individual time trial closing the race in San Benedetto del Tronto on Tuesday. The day’s win was claimed by European TT champion Victor Campenaerts (LTS).

Nelson Oliveira took 12th place in a very well known, completely flat course along the coast, finishing 14″ behind the winner in yet another solid performance from the Portuguese specialist. In turn, Richard Carapaz sealed his top-20 overall finish at the end of a very lively race from the Blues -with up to three consecutive breakaways for Lluís Mas, Jorge Arcas and José Joaquín Rojas– not exempt from crashes, like those affecting Mas and Edu Prades.

The Movistar Team will be back in Italy on Saturday for another Giro d’Italia-organised event, Milano-Sanremo, where Alejandro Valverde and Mikel Landa will lead the Blue outfit.
