Van Avermaet denies Sagan on Tirreno-Adriatico stage 6

BMC rider takes race lead in late breakaway

A curious edition of Tirreno-Adriatico took another twist on its penultimate day in Cepagatti as Greg Van Avermaet (BMC) out-sprinted world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) from a small breakaway group to claim stage victory and move into the overall lead.

If the cancellation of Sunday’s stage to Monte San Vicino had presented the likes Van Avermaet, Sagan and Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-QuickStep) with an unexpected opportunity to win the race overall, they demonstrated on Monday that they had every intention of grabbing it.

The trio were part of an elite eight-rider group that cannily snuck off the front on the first of two laps around the finishing circuit in Cepagatti. Together with Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky), they were the final survivors, fending off the furious pursuit behind to fight it out for stage honours.

Kwiatkowski made a long, searing effort in the final kilometre that burnt off first Fernando Gaviria (Etixx-QuickStep) and then the race leader Stybar, before Sagan sprung into life and careered past him with 200 metres to go.

After a string of near misses, it seemed as though the world champion, today wearing the red points jersey, was going to land his first win since claiming the world title in Richmond last year, but Van Avermaet – no longer, it seems, the eternal second – fought back to come around Sagan at the death.

In truth, Van Avermaet had contributed the least in the eight-man move that was powered by Tinkoff and the Etixx-QuickStep trio of Stybar, Gaviria and Matteo Trentin. With teammate Tejay van Garderen, on the same time as him overall and a far stronger time triallist, in the chasing peloton, Van Avermaet felt he had a cast-iron alibi.

“I tried to save myself for the finish because we had only Tejay and Caruso in the group behind so it was not the best situation,” Van Avermaet said afterwards.

At one point, the eight leaders had an advantage of 35 seconds over the peloton, but the fragmented bunch closed to within touching distance of their coattails on the final run-in to the line, but couldn’t make the junction.

Caleb Ewan (Orica-GreenEdge) showcased his ferocious finishing speed by winning the fragmented bunch sprint for 5th place, 7 seconds down on Van Avermaet. Alejandro Valerde, whose Movistar team had been active in chasing the move, placed 6th, ahead of Sacha Modolo (Lampre-Merida).

The ten-second time bonus for the stage win was enough to lift Van Avermaet into the blue jersey of race leader, seven seconds ahead of Stybar, who battled gamely to hold on before yielding in those breathless final metres.

Sagan, meanwhile, lies in third place overall, 8 seconds down on Van Avermaet, though all three could yet face a stiff challenge in the short final time trial from Bob Jungels (Etixx-QuickStep), who lies 4th at 21 seconds.

“It’s not my speciality,” Van Avermaet said. “10k is pretty long for me. I’m better in prologues but I’ll try. It’s a bit of a strange situation that I’m going for the GC in Tirreno.”

How it unfolded

As Tirreno-Adriatico resumed action after Sunday’s unexpected stoppage, normal service appeared to be restored when a break sallied clear shortly after the start in Castelraimondo. Federico Zurlo (Lampre-Merida), Mirko Selvaggi (Androni Sidermec), Valerio Agnoli (Astana), Nikolay Mihaylov (CCC Sprandi), Stefano Pirazzi (Bardiani CSF) and Ricardo Vilela (CajaRural RGA) established a maximum lead of three minutes over the peloton before Etixx-QuickStep and Orica-GreenEdge set about the business of pegging them back.

When that leading sextet was pegged back ahead of the bonus sprint with 21 kilometres remaining, it seemed that the stage was about to peter out to an inevitable bunch sprint conclusion, though in hindsight, the activity of Tinkoff on the front was a clear indication that there were still some frissons in store.

After expertly leading out Sagan to pick up the three bonus seconds on offter, the wily Daniele Bennati and Oscar Gatto persisted in their effort at the head of the peloton, and only Van Avermaet, Kwiatkowski and the Etixx-QuickStep troika of Gaviria, Stybar and Trentin were immediately live to the threat.

The Etixx-QuickStep and Tinkoff blocks quickly established a decent working alliance and when they powered the group some 35 seconds clear of the bunch, panic began to set in behind, with Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) moved to set off in pursuit shortly afterwards with Jan Bakelants (AG2R La Mondiale).

They were soon brought to heel and when the bunch closed to within ten seconds on the approach to the bell, it looked as though there would be a general regrouping. Instead, however, the impetus fizzled away from the head of the bunch while Bennati and Gatto continued to put their shoulders to the wheel, and the gap yawned out once more.

A long stint of pace-making from Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) helped to keep the bunch within sight, though his teammates Jasper Stuyven and Bauke Mollema’s later attempt to bridge across alone was a sign that cohesion was hard to come by in the peloton. The chase was interrupted still further by a crash with five kilometres remaining, where Michele Scarponi (Astana) seemed the worst-afflicted.

Although the leading group began to shed riders in the final kilometres as their efforts told – Bennati, Gatto, Trentin and Gaviria all, eventually, sat up – the four who remained had enough firepower to stay clear and Van Avermaet claimed the win.

Already winner of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this spring, Van Avermaet has laid down a marker for Classics, but he was unsure how that form would translate to Tirreno-Adriatico’s closing time trial on the sea front at San Benedetto del Tronto.
