Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) had no troubles to cover the 10km individual time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto and seal his second overall triumph in Tirreno-Adriatico on Tuesday, two years after claiming his first 'trident' in 2015 with a similar procedure as for the last week of racing: leaving his rivals behind into the Terminillo climb and holding them off into the TT showdown.

Australian Rohan Dennis (BMC, 2nd), winner of today's final stage, and Frenchman Thibaut Pinot (FDJ, 3rd) joined the 'Cóndor de Boyacá' over the podium, as the Movistar Team secured their title as best squad in the 'Race of the Two Seas' following excellent work from Castroviejo -7th overall-, Dowsett -10th in the TT-, Moreno, Amador, Oliveira, Sütterlin and Bennati.

Quintana's win, his 35th as a pro and the 15th he obtains at UCI-sanctioned stageraces, brightens up even more what already was a solid start to the Movistar Team's 2017 season (9 wins so far), the Blues having claimed four multi-day events this year -Valencia, Andalucía, Alentejo- and showing again that they become stronger as races get tougher over the course of several days of competition.
