Paris-Nice: Porte Smashes Final ITT, Wins Overall

Doug Pensinger

Another big day for Team Sky

Richie Porte secured the biggest win of his career and another big day for Team Sky with a dominant ride in the the Col d'Éze time trial, easily securing his first major stage race victory and confirming his status as another major weapon for Team Sky and Australian cycling. Garmin-Sharp's Andrew Talansky took second on the stage, going fastest at the line, but he could do nothing to stop Porte from taking Australia's first overall win in Paris-Nice.

Movistar's Nairo Quintana scorched the slopes of the Col d'Éze, smashing the best time on the day with a ride of 19.43, 36 seconds faster than Michele Scarponi of Lampre. But the two major combatants of the race bested him in the end.
