Ganna: Tirreno-Adriatico time trial loss showed ‘I’m human, not a robot’

Ganna: Tirreno-Adriatico time trial loss showed ‘I’m human, not a robot’



Filippo Ganna was widely expected to extend his run of time trial victories to nine on Tuesday’s final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico, but the Italian could only gracefully accept defeat after being beaten by Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) in the 10.1 kilometres out-and-back seafront time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto. 

Ganna had not lost a time trial since the 2020 Vuelta a San Juan last January. In the last 12 months he had won eight time trials, including the Italian National Championships, the World Championships in Imola and all three time trials at the Giro d’Italia. This year he won at the Etoile de Bessèges and the UAE Tour, and was the big favourite for a second consecutive time trial win at Tirreno-Adriatico.
