Bennati crowns a great day for Liquigas at Tirreno

Both Daniele Bennati and Cameron Wurf gave their teams a lift today at Tirreno-Adriatico. Italy's Bennati restored Liquigas' faith with a stage win in Monsummano Terme after the team had worked for him in the previous two days, and Australia's Wurf sent a signal to RCS Sport via an escape that team Androni is still one to believe in.

Wurf's Androni team-mate Massimo Giunti tested positive for EPO prior to the start of Tirreno-Adriatico and put team manager, Gianni Savio, in bad standing for an invitation to the Giro d'Italia. RCS Sport is due to make its team selections in the coming days and it should be swayed by performances like Wurf's.
