Warren Barguil took a fine stage win on Friday after the Arkéa-Samsic rider clipped off the front of the reduced breakaway to land stage five at Tirreno-Adriatico.

Barguil completed the 155-kilometre stage from Sefro to Fermo in 3hr 39min 53sec, 10sec ahead of second-placed Xandro Meurisse (Alpecin-Fenix), while Simone Velasco (Astana Qazaqstan) was third at 14sec.

“This is amazing. I planned to be at the front in the finale,” said Barguil. “It was a good stage for me and I felt it would be a good day for the breakaway. I got a great help from my team-mate, friend and room-mate Clément Russo. I gave everything up the ‘wall’. I’m wrecked but I’ve made it.”

In what was a frenetic finale, overall leader Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates), Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) and Remco Evenepoel (Quick Step-Alpha Vinyl) overshot a turn while in pursuit of the breakaway featuring Barguil. Although the trio missed out on the opportunity to challenge for the stage, Pogacar kept hold of his leader’s jersey.
