Tirreno-Adriatico: Recent winners
Tirreno-Adriatico is essentially the Italian version of Paris-Nice, with grand tour specialists often choosing one of the two races in which to gauge their form before bigger goals. The race features a solid mix of mountains, time-trials and flat stages. Recent winners like Nibali and Cadel Evans know the positive effect a result here can have on future ambitions.

De Vlaeminck holds the incredible record of winning Tirreno six times in a row, dominating the field between 1972 and 1977.
