Israel Start-Up Nation’s Mads Wurtz Schmidt won stage 6 of Tirreno-Adriatico today, after sprinting to victory from a six-man breakaway group ahead of his closest rivals Brent Van Moer (Lotto Soudal) and Simone Velasco (Gazprom-RusVelo).
Meanwhile, there was no change in the general classification ahead of tomorrow’s final 10.1 kilometer time trial, with Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) retaining his lead of 1:15 over Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma).
Today’s 169 kilometer stage from Castelraimondo to Lido di Fermo was a relatively uneventful one, with a small breakaway group containing Jan Bakelants (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert), Velasco, Schmidt, Van Moer, Nelson Oliveira (Movistar) and Emils Liepins (Trek-Segafredo) eventually riding clear after 30 kilometers of racing.
From there, the six escapees built up a sizable advantage over the peloton, remaining out front for the duration of the stage that would ensure an inevitable sprint finale, with Schmidt emerging victorious.
