Goss snatches second stage in Rome
ROME: Australian Matthew Goss of Orica-Greenedge won the second stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico over 232km from San Vincenzo to Indicatore in a sprint finish on Thursday.
Britain’s Mark Cavendish of Omega-Pharma retained the leader’s blue jersey despite finishing only fifth on the stage.
“It was quite chaotic in the final laps because it was raining, there were a lot of risks,” said Cavendish.
“I feel we could have got a lot more out of that race than we actually did today, but we will try again.”
Italian Manuel Belletti was second with German Gerald Ciolek taking third. — AFP
