Quintana wins Tirreno-Adriatico, Cancellara takes stage win

SAN BENEDETTO DEL TRONTO, Italy (AP) — Nairo Quintana has won the Tirreno-Adriatico despite finishing well off the pace of the quickest riders on the seventh and final stage, an individual time trial.

Quintana, who was runner-up last year, finished 51st, 55 seconds behind stage winner Fabian Cancellara on the 10-kilometer (six-mile) course, but it was enough to take overall victory, 18 seconds ahead of Bauke Mollema.

Rigoberto Uran was third overall, 31 seconds behind Quintana, who wore the leader’s blue jersey since claiming it in a snowy uphill finish on Saturday.

Cancellara, who lost out to Adriano Malori by just one second in the opening time trial, won the final stage by four seconds over Malori. Vasil Kiryienka finished third, nine seconds behind the Swiss cyclist.
