Gaviria 4th in the sprint at Tirreno-Adriatico

The 6th stage of Tirreno-Adriatico (Castelfidardo-Senigallia, 171 km) arrived in a sprint finish and once again Fernando Gaviria was among the main contenders for the win.


However, the Colombian of UAE Team Emirates just fell short, crossing the finish line in 4th place. Victory went to Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Fenix) from Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) and Magnus Cort Nielsen (Ef).


Gaviria: “It was a complicated and chaotic sprint. The team worked well, managing the approach to the sprint in the best possible way. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to achieve the success I’m looking for. There are still two stages to look for a victory for the team”.


The 7th and penultimate stage will start from Pieve Torina and will end, after 181 km, in Loreto: including a climb which they will hit four times (2.6 km at 4.5%) which promises to make the route lively.
