Sky in Tirreno-Adriatico and San Remo, Ricco's Flaminia out

Team Sky and Mark Cavendish's HTC-Columbia have secured their places in RCS Sport's early-season races - Eroica, Milan-San Remo and Tirreno-Adriatico - but notably off the list of invitees is the team of Riccardo Riccò, Ceramica Flaminia.

Riccò will return to racing March 18 and had planned to use the Milan-San Remo, two days later, as his comeback race. His Ceramica Flaminia team participated in the races last year, though, and may have been left off the list due to Riccò's partner, Vania Rossi, testing positive for EPO-CERA.
