Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 Route stage 1: TTT in Lido di Camaiore

Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 stage 1Wednesday, 8 March 2017 – The Tirreno-Adriatico begins with a team time trial in Lido di Camaiore. At 22.7 kilometres, the route is fast and flat.

The route is a copy of last year’s TTT when BMC powered to the win 2 seconds ahead of Etixx-Quickstep. The opening stage is played out on long straight roads. Four 90-degree turns, that’s it, so we can expect high speeds.

With the TTT-win in 2016 BMC-rider Greg Van Avermaet layed the groundwork for his overall victory. As the Queen Stage was cancelled later on the The Race of the Two Seas turned out to become a battle between hilly specialists Van Avermaet and Sagan, with the former besting the latter by 1 second in the overall. In hindsight, the TTT on day one had a major impact with BMC/Van Avermaet putting 11 seconds into Tinkoff/Sagan.

Lido di Camaiore is a borough belonging to Camaiore, where pro-cycling race Gran Premio Città di Camaiore has been held from 1966 to 2014. Diego Ullisi was the last winner before the race was discontinued.
