Tirreno-Adriatico 2019 Route stage 1: TTT in Lido di Camaiore

Wednesday 13 March - The traditional team time trial on the Tyrrhenian coast kicks off the Tirreno-Adriatico. At 21.5 kilometres, the route is a copy of last year's race. Expect high speeds as the course is fast and flat.

The last three Lido di Camaiore TTT’s were all won by BMC, so the race will definitely see a new winner on the first day of action. Teams will storm on long straight roads along the Tyrrhenian Sea to the intermediate checkpoint at kilometre 10.7. This also serves as a turning point before the teams return to Lido di Camaiore as they came: on flat and straight roads.

In 2017, BMC recorded the fastest average time in the history of the race: 58.329km/h. Last year, they won the race 4 seconds ahead of Mitchelton-Scott with Sky another 5 seconds further behind.

The Lido di Camaiore route is flat and similar to the TTT in the UAE Tour, which was won by Lotto-Visma (Primoz Roglic) ahead of Team Sunweb (Tom Dumoulin) Bahrain-Merida (Vincenzo Nibali, Rohan Dennis).

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.
