Vingegaard wins Tirreno-Adriatico as Milan claims final stage

Jonas Vingegaard won Cycling’s Tirreno-Adriatico on Sunday as local hero Jonathan Milan claimed the final stage on the San Benedetto del Tronto seafront in a bunch sprint.

Italian Milan pipped Alexander Kristoff to the line after 154 kilometres of riding around the town on the Adriatic coast as Vingegaard made sure of overall victory.

Double Tour de France winner Vingegaard did the hard work by winning the previous two mountain stages, and there was almost no chance of the Dane giving up his lead of one minute and 24 seconds in Sunday’s race.

Those two stage wins also secured the King of the Mountains jersey for Visma–Lease a Bike rider Vingegaard, who is looking in hot form in a year he will attempt a hat-trick of Tour victories.

Sunday’s stage started with climbs which could have isolated the sprinters in the peloton but an early break led by Ben Healy was caught just as the bell sounded for the last 14km lap of San Benedetto del Tronto.

And with the riders jostling for position Milan gave the local fans something to smile about with his second stage win of the race.
