Tirreno-Adriatico 2019

Tirreno-Adriatico 2019Edition 54 of the Tirreno-Adriatico starts with the traditional TTT on Wednesday 13 March. The race features seven stages and finishes on Tuesday 19 March with a flat ITT  in San Benedetto del Tronto. The Race of the Two Seas dates back to 1966 and, remarkably, takes in no high altitude finish in 2019. (Slideshow route/profile)

The 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico is tailor-made for hilly specialists. At merely 364 metres above sea level, the finish in Pomarance on the second day of action is as high as it goes this edition. The finale of the 4th stage features two times the climb up I Cappuccini, while stage 5 is played out around a central climb in arrival place Recanti. This hill is included four times.

The race takes in both a finish and start in Foligno, where André Greipel stormed to a sprint victory in the 2016 Giro d’Italia and Stephen Cummings won a stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico earlier that year.

Michal Kwiatkowski won the 2018 edition ahead of Damiano Caruso and Geraint Thomas.
