Tirreno Adriatico 2020

OTR League

As La Tour winds its way through France we have Tirreno Adriatico running in parallel.  This year’s Tirreno-Adriatico will be the 55th running of the race which starts on Monday 7 September and finishes on 14th Sept giving eight days of racing.  With some significant climbing such as the finish climb to Sassotetto on day 5 of 13.2 kilometres at 7.3%, I hope there is some TV coverage.

Pre Covid, the Tirreno Adriatico was scheduled for 11 – 17 March it now has an additional mountainous stage.

The top 5 from 2019 were:

  1. Primoz Roglic
  2. Adam Yates
  3. Jakob Fuglsang
  4. Tom Dumoulin
  5. Thibaut Pinot

So one thing is sure – the top 5 will be very different this year.  It will be interesting to see whether any riders feel they have a point to prove for missing out on TdF.  There is still a potentially very competitive field of contenders for the overall.

Rider details can be found here.

Note:  Picks will open for Giro d’Italia Femminile on Friday 4th September.
