Tirreno-Adriatico 2014 Results 7th stage- Malori wins TT, Contador GC

Adriano MaloriAlberto Contador wrapped up the overall win of Tirreno-Adriatico as expected but it was the Italian Adriano Malori who took a surprise win in the final time trial. (Slideshow route/profile)

Malori won ahead of the top three time trialists in the world, Cancellara, Wiggins and Martin. The Italian is a strong time-trialist having been Italian champion in 2011 but this is a huge result as he powered around the 9.1 kilometre course.

Contador was 29th on the day, 2 seconds behind Quintana so will need to improve in the discipline before the Tour de France. His overall lead was never in doubt however with those 2 great stage victories putting him back in the spotlight as possible threat to Froome in July.
