Fabian Cancellara Powers to Time Trial Victory in Final Stage of Tirreno-Adriatico 2012
Italy's Vincenzo Nibali of Team Liquigas-Cannondale earlier today won the 2012 Tirreno-Adriatico race on home turf, securing victory with a strong ride in the final 9.3 kilometer individual time trial along the coastal line in San Benedetto del Tronto.
I think we did a brilliant race. This is not a course that is ideal for me, but to stay on the podium is good for me. I was concerned that I might not stay in the top three."
"The only feeling I have about this is one of feeling great. Great about the way the team worked this week and great about the way my legs feel. After what happened in the Tour de France last year and to be out of racing for so long, for me there was always a little bit of doubt how I would feel to come back. I held the jersey for three days in my first race in eight months. I'm coming out of this very satisfied. My form is fantastic and I look forward to the next stage races."
