Tirreno-Adriatico

Where: Italy
When: September 7-14 2020
Rank: UCI WorldTour

The 2020 edition of Tirreno-Adriatico will see the week long stage race enter its 55th year.

Last year’s win went to Primož Roglič (Jumbo Visma), the Slovenian took victory on the final day with a margin of just one second ahead of Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott).

In 2018, the win was Michał Kwiatkowski’s, whilst 2017’s victor was Nairo Quintana who also won in 2015. Both Alberto Contador and Vincenzo Nibali have two wins to their names, too.

Tirreno-Adriatico often serves as a preparation ground for those aiming for Milan-San Remo glory as well as those riders thinking of taking home the maglia rosa at the Giro d’Italia in May, but the Covid-19 pandemic pushed the race back to September, with the Giro in October and Milan-San Remo in August.

Tirreno-Adriatico usually runs alongside Paris-Nice, which was raced in its original slot in March, but the race between the two seas has its own prestige, with some very big name winners.
