The sixth stage of the 2015 Tirreno-Adriatico was the second longest and by far the most miserable day of the week for the riders, who after climbing through the snow to the top of the Terminillo the previous day, spent all 210km from Rieti to Porto Sant'Elpidio being soaked through by an icy cold rain.

The Tinkoff-Saxo team took control, splitting the peloton on the day's only climb, and once sprinters such as Mark Cavendish had been jettisoned, they set about delivering Peter Sagan to his first victory of 2015.
