Australian time trial ace Rohan Dennis (BMC) won stage 7 of Tirreno-Adriatico Tuesday, and Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski defended the blue leader's jersey to win the overall in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy.

After the sixth leg of the race and with a total time of 25:21.22, Kwiatkowski retained a three-second lead over Italian Damiano Caruso and a 23-second lead over Spaniard Mikel Landa.

Rome: German sprinter Marcel Kittel claimed his second stage win in this year's Tirreno-Adriatico cycling race, edging triple world champion Peter Sagan in a crash-marred sixth stage to Fano on Monday.

The Polish cyclist eventually finished 24 seconds ahead of Caruso in the overall standings, with Geraint Thomas third, 32 seconds behind his Team Sky teammate. "I'm just happy I won today".

The Pole found himself as Sky's leading contender when team-mate Geraint Thomas suffered a mechanical issue on Saturday's fourth stage.
