Matt Goss wins wet Tirreno sprint

Matt Goss wins Tirreno-Adriatico 2013, stage two

Matt Goss won stage two of Tirreno-Adriatico after a hectic sprint in Indicatore today. The win came within an hour of his team mate Michael Albasini winning in Paris-Nice to cap a successful day for Orica-GreenEdge.

Goss won after bursting through the middle of a small leading pack after an unorganised sprint. In torrential rain no one team wanted to take it on and both Mark Cavendish and André Greipel - the fancied riders for today's sprint - were left without a textbook leadout.
