2013 Tirreno – Adriatico (6/3/13 to 12/3/13 ) 2.WT1 – Channel live on Eurosport


Tirreno – Adriatico: Italy Stage Race

Big race from Italy for racing fans as one of strongest fields assembles for Italy’s only week-long stage race.

There will be 4 stages that decide a race that for the last 4 years has seen winners being a combination of good climbers and a solid TT.  Scarponi, Garzelli,  Evans and last season Nibali. A super-strong line up comes out for this.

Contador (5/2) attacked and showed strength but came up short in Oman, may well take time out of Froome in the team time trial. Froome (4.5) beat him in Oman but now faces a Contador that will likely have got stronger and as mentioned his Sky team doesn’t contain usual strong TT line-up.  Evans (8) won two years back and has won a bit outside of the tour of late. He will do well in team but always lets a little down out of season in a TT.
