Overnight leader Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) retained his top spot with one stage to go, though it was far from plain sailing for his team-mates.
Michal Kwiatkowski of Team Sky became the first Pole to win the Tirreno-Adriatico seasonal warm-up cross-Italy race on Tuesday.
Kwiatkowski started the individual time trial with an advantage of three seconds over Damiano Caruso and he was quicker than the Italian rider at every time check. "I'm just happy I won today".
