You have to be adaptive to the situation in cycling, and that's what the teams and riders were at Tirreno-Adriatico after snow forced organisers to cancel stage 5. 

With an unexpected rest day, the riders and enjoyed a short morning ride to keep the legs spinning before heading to their next hotel. There was no sign of snow but the temperatures had plummeted so there was plenty of warm weather gear on show. 

The afternoon will be a chance to rest up and plan for the final two stages. 

Racing will resume on Monday with a 210km stage to Cepagatti.

A cancelled stage at #Tirreno doesn't mean a rest day for @BMCProTeam... pic.twitter.com/qcgZda1so2
