Adriano Malori (Movistar) took the first leader's jersey of the 2015 Tirreno-Adriatico by winning the stage one time trial, edging out Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) by a single second.

Malori took his place on the leader's chair with twenty seven riders still to go, including time trial specialists and GC contenders. His time of 6-04 on the short 5.4km course was enough to see him hold the lead until the end and claim the stage and overall lead.
