With Paris-Nice underway in France, over in Italy, the 51st edition of Tirreno-Adriatico gets underway this Wednesday. The seven-stage race starts with a team time trial before tackling various different terrains including sprinters and mountain stages and finishing off with an individual time trial of 10km.

“Our goal for Tirreno will be to go for stage results,” explained coach Marc Reef (NED). “With our sprinter Nikias coming back from a knee injury we needed to change our tactics a bit and apply a broader approach.

“Tirreno traditionally represents multiple stages with difficult finales, so next to Nikias, we will also have Zico to go for results in those scenarios. We are glad to have Ramon back in the team for the first time since the accident. He will get the opportunity to get back into racing first.”
