"I don't actually know the final result, just that I won, and that's all that matters", Kwiatkowski said. The Australian, who also won the closing time trial past year, was four seconds faster than Jos van Emden and eight ahead of Jonathan Castroviejo.
The leading riders all had to deal with a damp course, with early finisher Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) taking stage victory in a time of 11 minutes and 14 seconds - 20 seconds quicker than Kwiatkowski. "Its a good confidence boost going forward". "I feel sorry for him, but we remained focused on our goal", Kittel said. "I've had some heavy racing for two and half months". "Tirreno-Adriatico is one of the hardest stage races to win so I'm really happy to be on the first step".
Team Sky's Welshman, though, regained contact and lost no further time on general classification and finished Monday's stage fourth overall just 6sec behind third-placed Mikel Landa (Movistar).
With Porte ill, Van Garderen at Paris-Nice (where he abandoned on stage one after crashing into a car), and Dennis seemingly short of form despite focusing on the Giro this year, Caruso seized his opportunity with a strong second place finish overall. This is a attractive race with a lovely trophy.
Kittel's other stage win was for the sprinters on Thursday. "I'm confident in Team Sky to support me to try and win Milan-Sanremo again on Saturday".
