Slovenian arrives safely to take home 18 win of season for UAE.
After a dominant display on Stage 6 which he won solo, Tadej Pogačar cemented his overall crown at Tirreno-Adriatico for the second consecutive year.
On a final day for the sprinters, Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain-Victorious) was the winner in San Benedetto del Tronto, but the overall crown belonged to Tadej Pogačar and UAE Team Emirates.
Pogačar: “I enjoyed the stage today and in general it was a great week . I was focussed right up until the end, as you have to be, as it’s never over until you cross the finish line. The two stage victories were very beautiful. Any race where you can get a victory is amazing. I’m delighted to get my second win here at Tirreno-Adriatico. I’ll take a couple of days rest now and look ahead to Milan-San Remo which will be the next challenge”.
Pogačar dominated the Tirreno-Adriatico atop on his Colnago bike equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS Disc Brake groupset and with Campagnolo full carbon Bora wheels.
