Würtz Schimdt wins on the run on the eve of the decisive time trial

After the galacticos dominated the first five stages, the getaway was successful and Cherie Pridham celebrated a female director's first World Tour success.


After the galacticos dominated in the first five stages of the Tirreno-Adriatico (triumphs of Van Aert, Alaphilippe, Pogacar and a double of Van der Poel), in the sixth a worker from the break won. The Danish Mads Würtz Schimdt of Israel was superior to his five adventure partners, Simone Velasco, Jan Bakelants, Nathan van Hooydonck, Nelson Oliveira and Emils Liepins, to achieve the third victory of his career. Although the U23 World Cup was scored in 2015, it has been difficult for him to consolidate. At 26 he achieved his first success in the top flight. And in her team car, Britain's Cherie Pridham celebrated a woman's first success as a director on the World Tour.

Iván García Cortina did not start. The Asturian suffered a fall last Thursday from which he is not fully recovering. With the intention of putting an end to the physical discomfort for the classics, he will now rest and train with caution. At the moment, the Movistar signing signs two top-ten in this Tirreno (ninth and seventh) and an 11th in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad as the best results of 2021. Mikel Landa, the third overall, was given a warmth to link with the group after a mechanical mishap.

In the case of Simon Carr, 11th on the Strade Bianche and 8th on the Prati di Tivo finish, he collided violently with a traffic signal about 60 km from the finish… but continued in the race. The 22-year-old Englishman, trained in French cycling (also with his nationality), became professionals with the Delko in August 2020 and won Ordizia. Her performance in just a few months was worth her to reach the World Tour in 2021 with her signing for Education First, and this season she maintains her progression.

This Tuesday ends the round of the two seas with the usual time trial of San Benedetto del Tronto, of 10.1 km. Tadej Pogacar will defend 1:15 advantage over Wout van Aert and Landa, 30 seconds against Egan Bernal for third place.
