Tirreno-Adriatico Final Stage: New Best Time

Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) hit the line 13 seconds faster than the previous best set by Johan Le Bon (FDJ) just nipping past a rider who had started two minutes before him.  The Swiss rider had thrown down the gauntlet that few who even dare to pick up.  Cancellara's over all time meant that he had little chance of upsetting the overall classification, but it had to feel good to take out the final stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.
