Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka worked hard to secure the expected bunch sprint on stage 6 of Tirreno-Adriatico. In a chaotic finish, Scott Thwaites impressed by taking 7th place against the best sprinters in the race. After two very hard and hilly days for the riders, today’s stage offered a rare chance for the sprinters to fight for glory. Eight riders got away early on the stage but the peloton kept the break on a tight leash, not allowing the gap to get much over three minutes. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka was fully committed to control the race and together with Quick-Step Floors, our riders managed.
