Edition 55 of the Tirreno-Adriatico starts on Wednesday 11 March on the Tyrrhenian coast. The race features seven stages and is set to finish on Tuesday the 17th, obviously on the Adriatic coast. The Race of the Two Seas dates back to 1966. Usually, the race took in a mix of time trials, chances for fast men, a few hilly races, and one challenge in the high mountains. Yet, the high altitude finish was skipped in 2019 in favour of more Classics oriented riders.
An important race in itself, the Tirreno-Adriatico also reveals who the form riders are before the first major classic of the season, Milan-San Remo.
Primoz Roglic won the 2019 edition ahead of Adam Yates and Jakob Fuglsang.
