Paolo Tiralongo (Astana) won the final stage of the 2015 Giro del Trentino from a three-man break on Friday. The Astana rider finished ahead of David Arroyo (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA) and Fabio Duarte (Colombia) in the 161.5km stage from Malè to Cles.

Richie Porte (Team Sky) finished safely in the main field to claim the overall title ahead of Mikel Landa (Astana Pro Team) and Sky teammate Leopold König.

Porte moved into the race lead following his stage 2 victory at Brentonico-Parco Del Baldo, where he attacked with two kilometres to go and reached the line 16 seconds head of Landa. With the help of his Team Sky teammates during the final two stages, Porte won the overall title by 22 seconds ahead of Landa and 58 seconds ahead of König.

It was Porte’s third stage-race victory of the season following Paris-Nice and the Volta a Catalunya. He will target the Giro d’Italia next, which kicks off on May 9 in San Lorenzo al Mare. "It's always nice to win any race," Porte said.

"It would have been nice if a few more of the Giro favourites were here but you can only race the guys who turn up to race. For me I think it was a fantastic preparation race for the Giro. I'm happy with where I'm at and I felt better each day.

"It's two more weeks until the Giro starts. I can go home, rest, recover and take great confidence in this race as it wasn't easy.

"You look back to two years ago Vincenzo (Nibali) won here. It looks like it is the race to come and do before you go and race the Giro. I'm looking forward to the next few days looking at the decisive stages of the Giro.”

The fourth and final stage at the Giro del Trentino was expected to cause a breakup in the main field with two category 2 climbs, the Fondo and the Passo Predaia in the first 100km, and the final 60km undulating all the way to the finish line in Cles.

An early breakaway of 17 riders included Diego Rosa (Astana), who started the day in 13 place overall and 2:12 behind Porte.

Team Sky led the chase with Porte safely tucked in behind. The large breakaway made it to the bottom of the Passo Predaia, however, they were caught before the peloton hit the slopes.

A new lead group of seven riders emerged over the top, and from that, Fabio Duarte (Colombia) made the move that formed the day’s successful three-man breakaway. He was later joined by Tiralongo and Arroyo. The trio sprinted to the finish line with Tiralongo taking the stage win.

The remaining riders in the chase group; Jean-Christophe Peraud (Ag2r-La Mondiale), Gianfranco Zilioli (Androni-Giocattoli), Simone Petili (Italy) and Alessandro Bisolti (Nippo-Vini Fantini) finished 37 second behind the leading trio.

Porte finished safely in the main field, 49 seconds back, and as the winner of the Giro del Trentino.
