Rohan Dennis (BMC) has won the seventh stage of Tirreno-Adriatico. Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski was fast enough to win the race.

The last stage of the race was a 10-kilometre Individual Time Trial in San Benedetto del Tronto. The day started with Ryan Mullen (Trek-Segafredo) setting the best provisional time but after a few minutes, his teammate Mads Pedersen moved him away from the hot seat.

This was a day for the specialists and that was confirmed when Australian time trial champion Rohan Dennis (BMC) set the best time at 11 minutes and 14 seconds. Other experts like Jos van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Jonathan Castroviejo (Sky) set good times but were no match for Dennis.

The last riders to start the course, the first ones in the General Classification, had to face worse weather conditions as it started to rain hard in San Benedetto del Tronto.

Nobody could take Dennis away from the hot seat and Kwiatkowski set a good enough time to keep his lead in the General Classification. Geraint Thomas, who was in the fourth overall position, delivered a decent time trial and climbed one spot to step on the last spot of the podium, while Damiano Caruso kept the second position.

This is Dennis' fourth win in a time trial in 2018 after the Australian championships, the time trial stage of the Abu Dhabi Tour and the team time trial that opened Tirreno-Adriatico.
