Tirreno-Adriatico 2014 Results 3rd stage: Puncheur Peter (Sagan)!

The 3rd stage on the 2014 Tirreno-Adriatico goes from Cascina to Arezzo. The 210 kilometres ride is flat, but the finish is tricky, suited for puncheurs. Peter Sagan treats all riders to a master class in the discipline and beats Kwiatkoski while doing so. A sweet revenge after the Stade Bianchi... (Slideshow route/profile)

Boem, Thomson, Canola, Benedetti and Thurau do the break away service today. The last one is the most stubborn and only gicves in with 8 kilometres to go. It’s up to the puncheurs now. BMC goes to great lengths to bring Gilbert in a good position to finish. But it’s in vain.

Peter Sagan tastes some sweet revenge after his loss in the Strade Bianche. Then he had to congratulate Michal Kwiatkowski on his win after a brilliant finale, today it’s the other way around after an equally brilliant finale. Philippe Gilbert finishes fourth.

Kwiatkowski will take comfort knowing he’ll start in the blue leader’s jersey tomorrow.
