Tao Geoghegan Hart was able to finish off a strong General Classification challenge at Tirreno-Adriatico to finish third overall at the prestigious stage race.

The Brit was able to safely navigate the final stage, which eventually concluded in a bunch sprint along the coast in San Benedetto del Tronto.

The race continued Geoghegan Hart's strong recent momentum, in a week which saw him battling for stage wins and riding impressively. He eventually came home 23 seconds back on winner Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) and just five seconds behind second-placed Joao Almeida (UAE Team Emirates).

The result also makes Geoghegan Hart only the fifth Brit to finish on the Tirreno podium.

Unfortunately Tom Pidcock was involved in a crash and, as a precaution, withdrew from the race. He was treated by the team's doctor at the bus having sustained mild abrasions. He’ll be undergoing further assessment and treatment.
Sunday also saw the finale of Paris-Nice - with Pavel Sivakov riding well to finish seventh on the run into Nice.

That ensured the Grenaider finished ninth overall, capping off a strong week that saw him riding in elite company. Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) secured the overall win.
