Giro d'Italia organiser RCS Sport will unveil the route for its March-stage race, Tirreno-Adriatico next week and help the Milan-San Remo favourites decide their paths to potential glory. On the table rests the classic choice, to race Tirreno-Adriatico or its older French cousin, Paris-Nice.

RCS Sport will announce the Tirreno-Adriatico parcours on Monday on the Tuscan coast in San Vincenzo. The town will host the opening team time trial, as it did last year, on March 6. The race ends six days later, March 12, in San Benedetto del Tronto, again with a time trial.
