The sprinter teams have miscalculated with organising the chase of the break far too late in the penultimate stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico. A leading group with my countrymen Jan Bakelants and Brent Van Moer remained well ahead. They fell short against the Dane Mads Würtz Schmidt (Israel Start-Up Nation) and his fellow escapee’s!! Tadej Pogacar heads to Tuesday’s final time trial as leader.
