Filippo Ganna powered to a nail biting second place finish in the opening time trial of Tirreno - Adriatico, losing out by just one second on the line.

The pan flat, 10 kilometre long course along the beach front in Lido di Camaiore was sure to keep the gaps between the favourites small. So it proved to be, with Ganna coming through the intermediate time check in third, just two seconds back.

In the last few hundred metres, it was clear how tight the race to the line would be. The Italian would give it everything but fell just short, finishing one second back on stage winner Juan Ayuso (UAE - Team Emirates).

Magnus Sheffield unfortunately slipped out on a tight corner, but was able to remount, and finish just 31 seconds back on the stage winner’s time.

Result 

1. Juan Ayuso (UAE - Team Emirates)

2. Filippo Ganna +1"

3. Jonathan Milan (Lidl - Trek) +12"
