Preview Tirreno-Adriatico
logotinkoff Wednesday, 12th of March, it’s time for this year’s Italian stage race classic, Tirreno-Adriatico where Tinkoff-Saxo put up a powerful line-up containing: Alberto Contador, Daniele Bennati, Manuele Boaro, Matteo Tosatto, Nicolas Roche, Michael Mørkøv, Roman Kreuziger and Sergio Paulinho.

The race is launched with a team time trial over 18.5 kilometers just to get the muscles warmed up before the sprinters are blessed with two rather flat road stages. But when the sprinters have had their fun, stage 4 is a delicious snack for the climbers taking on 244 kilometers with an uphill finish to Cittareale. The race will be concluded with a flat individual time trial over 9.1 kilometers to settle the general classification.

“The course is rather classical. It’s launched with a team time trial, which will be crucial for the outcome of the final GC. But we have a strong and highly motivated group of riders on the start line and we’re aiming for the podium and preferably the top spot. Alberto is our leader and hopefully, he’ll be among the best after the opening stage and after a few flat stages for the sprinters, we’ll battle against riders like the Rigoberto Uran and Michael Kwiatkowski in the mountains and on the deciding individual time trial over 9 kilometers,” says Tinkoff-Saxo DS, Philippe Mauduit.
