Mathieu van der Poel: I don’t even know how I got to the finish line

Mathieu van der Poel is one of the biggest showmen in professional cycling and the Dutch champion put on another thriller to take the victory in a rain-swept stage of Tirreno-Adriatico on Sunday.

Having enjoyed a three-minute lead on the chasing group with 20 kilometres to go, the Alpecin-Fenix leader was nearly mowed down by a late surge from Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) that whittled his advantage to just 10 seconds at the finish.
