Tirreno-Adriatico: Dennis delivers in final TT; Kwiatkowski wins GC

"Tirreno-Adriatico is one of the hardest stage races to win so I'm really happy to be on the first step".

Former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski claimed the Tirreno-Adriatico week-long race as he retained the overall leader's blue jersey after the final individual time trial on Tuesday.

"The guys were absolutely brilliant today and we went in with a plan that was executed perfectly, they really ramped the pace up on the closing circuit and dropped me off in a great position on the climb".

Peter Sagan was second, while Kwiatkowski was third as he took the lead of the race from Damiano Caruso.

Thomas' fellow Briton Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) moved up a place from sixth to fifth with a time of 12.08, while Lotto Soudal's Tiesj Benoot recorded 12.01 to jump from eighth to fourth.

"I had to go with lower tire pressure".

Mikel Landa (Movistar) started the day in a podium place, 23 seconds off the race lead, but his time of 12.24 dropped him to sixth overall and one minute 13 seconds behind the GC victor. "It was tricky. I had to be careful but I had good feelings today and that's why I could finish so well".

Kwiatkowski duly held off Damiano Caruso in the final-stage time-trial, which was won by Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) for the second year in succession.

Although Jos van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo) came close, the Dutchman had to settle for second place, four seconds behind Dennis's time of 11:14 on the 10.05km course.

"To be honest I was nervous about it", Dennis said.

"I didn't want to lose Tirreno-Adriatico by a few seconds without trying to get the time bonus in the intermediate sprint", Kwiatkowski said.
