Tirreno-Adriatico: time trial in Ayuso, Ganna beaten by 1″ – Cycling

Juan Ayuso wins the first stage and is the first leader of the Tirreno-Adriatico 2024. The UAE Team Emirates rider was the author of a splendid performance in the inaugural time trial in Lido di Camaiore, soon setting the best time with 11’24” and resisting the command to the end.

The 21-year-old Spaniard managed to leave Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grendiers), the great favorite of the day before, (who started among the last) behind him by just one second, while another Italian, Jonathan Milan (Lidl-Trek), finished in third place. with a delay of 12″.

11 minutes and 24 seconds were enough for Ayuso to complete the ten kilometers time trial of the first stage of the race of the two seas and take the first Azzurra jersey, closing the gap on his rivals for the final success.

Excellent performance by Antonio Tiberi (Bahrain Victorious), who finished seventh with a delay of 17″, while the favorite of the day before Jonas Vingegaard (Visma-Lease a Bike) finished ninth (he and his teammates wore helmets aerodynamic which was reminiscent of those used in speed skiing), taking 22 seconds more than Ayuso to complete the 10 km and two seconds ahead of another ranking man like Jai Hindley (Bora-hansgrohe), also author of a good performance .

On the other hand, Richard Carapaz (EF Education.EasyPost) paid a lot as he lost 1’06” to Ayuso in the space of 10 kilometres, making him one of the worst among the big names aiming for victory. Of note is the fall of Magnus Sheffield (INEOS Grenadiers) who, having slipped to the ground in a bend, then got back on the bike, finishing his race in twenty-sixth place. “It’s fantastic, also because there was suspense until the end. We all knew that Filippo Ganna was the main rival – the Spaniard’s words – It’s a very emotional victory, really special. I wanted to sip the energy in the first part. When I turned after the intermediate I was sure I would make a good time. This result gives me a lot of motivation for the week to come.” Tomorrow the second stage of the race will take the group from Camaiore to Follonica for a total of 198 kilometers and the finish should smile on the sprinters’ faces.
