Froome, Contador, Nibali and Quintana all set for Tirreno-Adriatico

'Unprecedented spectacle' promised as all of the major Grand Tour stage racers gather in Italy for Tirreno-Adriatico (March 11-17)

Chris Froome 92nd), Vincenzo Nibali (winner) and Alberto Contador (3rd), Tirreno-Adriatico 2013

Chris Froome (Sky), Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo), Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Nairo Quintana (Movistar) will all take part in the 2015 Tirreno-Adriatico in what must rank as one of the most star-studded start lists of the past few seasons.

The provisional list of starters for the Italian WorldTour stage race (March 11-17) reads like a who's who of Grand Tour talent, which the organiser is quite rightly billing as an 'unprecedented line-up'.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
