The train of Quick Step Floors remains on the rails in the Adriatica Ionica Race : after the victory yesterday in the team time trial dashed off Elia Viviani in Maser faster than the rest of the mob. The Italian, of course, remains the leader, Viviani recorded his eleventh victory of the season.
There awaited the riders on a hilly stage between Lido di Jeso and Maser. But Viviani, clearly still feeding on an excellent Race condition, survived the slopes wonderfully and knocked his compatriot Consonni and the Est Raim. Viviani remains, after the victory yesterday in the team time trial, course leader in the general classification.
For Quick Step Floors, it was already the fortieth victory of the season. The team of Patrick Lefevere is by far the most successful team of the current season.
