Marcel Kittel, the Katusha sprinter, added a second win in this year’s Tirreno-Adriatico when he edged triple world champion Peter Sagan at the finish of the sixth stage in Fano on Monday

The 153-kilometre ride was marked by a mass crash in the closing stages provoked by Colombian sprinter Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step) and which forced Slovak Sagan (BORA), who was on his wheel, to take quick evasive action. 

Pole Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) kept his overall lead.
