Tirreno-Adriatico 2014 Results 6th stage: ‘Cav’ fastest
Mark Cavendish won the 6th stage of Tirreno-Adriatico in Porto Sant'Elpido after a perfect leadout from his teammates. Alberto Contador comfortably retains his overall lead. (Slideshow route/profile)
The ‘Manx Missile’ made it over two tough climbs today to be in the mix at the end and easily won the sprint after the Omega Pharma-QuikStep train delivered him impressively to the last 200 metres.
Missing from the sprint was Marcel Kittel, the big German dropped as Cannondale upped the pace on the climbs in a bid to lose the sprinters and play into Sagan’s hands. Their efforts proved in vain as Cavendish and his leadout train climbed brilliantly and then dominated a finale which also saw a high speed crash involving a couple of Lotto-Belisol riders.
The stage played out as a mini-Sanremo and no doubt will be a huge morale boost for Cav and his team ahead of La Primavera.
