Tinkoff-Saxo: Preview Paris-Nice
logotinkoff Sunday, March 9th, Tinkoff-Saxo will be on the start line for the prestigious French stage race, Paris-Nice with a strong line-up consisting of Chris Anker Sørensen, Nikolay Trusov, Ivan Rovny, Karsten Kroon, Marko Kump, Matti Breschel, Nicki Sørensen and Rafal Majka.

The stage race is launched with a 162.5 kilometer long circuit in and around Mantes La Jolie followed by 7 flat or slightly undulating stages. There are plenty of opportunities for the sprinters in this year’s Paris-Nice to win big while the climbers are left without any gruellingly steep mountain finishes. On the other hand, there are no individual time trials to ruin the climbers’ chances for overall glory.

Tinkoff-Saxo DS, Fabrizio Guidi comments:

“This edition of Paris-Nice is very different from previous editions without any time trials and no mountain top finishes. But there will be a few very long and hard stages leaving it up to the teams’ tactics to form the stages. Tactically, it’s going to be a very interesting race. We’re in the race to support Rafal for a solid result in the GC but I’m sure Chris (Sørensen) will get an opportunity as well but in the terrain this race offers, we have to play our cards right and preferably be aggressive.”
