Tirreno-Adriatico: marvellous TT by Malori, Niemiec 9th in the ranking

Three very good news for LAMPRE-MERIDA in the last stage of Tirreno-Adriatico. a time trial of 9,2 km in San Benedetto.

Adriano Malori was very close to the victory: he was 2nd (10’31”), 6” more than thw world champion Tony Martin winning performance.

Very good result for Niemiec too, who could obtain a place in the top ten of the overall final classification: thanks to his timing in the time trial (11’14”), Polish cyclist is 9th i the final ranking, at 3’19” to the winner Nibali.

Celebration day for Cunego too, who was awarded as the best climber of Tirreno-Adriatico.
In addition, LAMPRE-MERIDA’s champion received the trophy as best fighter.

“I really hoped to win, because I perform an outstanding time trial, but Martin is so strong – Malori commented – I had the best timing at the first intermediate, then Martin recovered. It was my second seasonal time trial, after the 5th place in Argentina: I’m more and more aware that the perfect Merida TT Warp bike and my good condition could allow me to compete against the best specialists”.

Niemiec too is satisfied: “It’s a very good result for me and for the team. Being in the top ten reward all the competitive performances I made in the early part of the season and it gave the team important points for the World Tour ranking”.
