  • Adam Yates times attack to perfection to win Stage 5

Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski retains the yellow jersey ahead of the second-last stage tomorrow.

Poland's Michal Kwiatkowski celebrates on the podium after winning the Tirreno Adriatico cycling race, in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

The German completed the stage in 3:49:54, beating Bora-Hansgrohe's Peter Sagan (Slovakia) and Quick-Step Floors' Maximiliano Richeze (Argentina) into second and third respectively.

The Polish rider, who appears in great form four days before the first Monument (top classic) of the season, Saturday's Milan-San Remo, beat Italian Damiano Cruso of BMC Racing by 24 seconds.

Caruso held on to second overall ahead of Team Sky's Geraint Thomas, whose time of 11mins 37 secs earned him a podium place, 32 seconds adrift of his team-mate.

"I don't actually know the final result, just that I won, and that's all that matters", Kwiatkowski said.

"I had to go with lower tire pressure".

"It's been a hard week for all Team Sky, we had some bad luck with Geraint Thomas, but at the end of the day we were motivated to have a really good race and that's how it was".

Thomas lost 36 seconds to the leaders following a mechanical failure during the fourth stage of the seven-stage race.

"Tirreno-Adriatico is the most important stage win in my career so far".

Dennis posted a time of 11 minutes and 14 seconds to pip Jos van Emden (Lotto NL-Jumbo) and Jonathan Castroviejo (Team Sky) to victory in the concluding 10-kilometre time-trial.

"I was nervous about it".

"I didn't want to lose Tirreno-Adriatico by a few seconds without trying to get the time bonus in the intermediate sprint", Kwiatkowski said.
