Landa: "I hope to be close to victory in the Tirreno"

The Spaniard, who has had a good start to the season with two top-ten in Italian classics, will be testing from today with the best in the World Tour round.


Spanish Mikel Landa, 31, will be the leader of the Bahrain Victorious in the Tirreno-Adriatico that will be held from this Wednesday until the 16th, the third test of the season for the Basque cyclist, who hopes to "be close to victory" . After sixth place in Laigueglia and third in the Larciano GP, Mikel Landa will have his first big test of the year against big rivals in a World Tour event.

"The Tirreno-Adriatico is a race that I like, I have raced it a couple of times. In 2018 I won a stage and I have a good feeling before starting. It will be the third competition of the season, maybe it is a bit too early to tell. Yes, I'll be ready to fight, but I think I trained well, "he said.

The route offers some option for climbers, such as the fourth stage, ending in Prati di Tivo. "I also like the route, with quite tough mountain stages, so I hope to be close to victory," he said. The Bahrain Victorious line-up will be made up of Mikel Landa, Pello Bilbao, Damiano Caruso, Eros Capecchi, Mark Padun, Jan Tratnik, and Fred Wright.
