Tadej Pogacar, winner of the 2020 Tour de France and the UAE Tour with which he started the World Tour in 2021, starts as the top favorite to conquer the Tirreno-Adriatico by fitness and motivation: “I would like to prolong my good time to win my fourth round in stages of the highest category (in 2019 it was imposed in California) At the Strade I showed that I could perform on a type of track that will closely resemble the various stages of this Tirreno. After winning here, in 2022 I would love to enroll in the Giro (in this course it will double Tour and Vuelta) ”. Because the 56th edition of the Carrera de los Dos Mares will offer three days with a mountain profile and a typical Italian slope finish, in addition to the high finish in Prati di Tivo and the usual closing time in San Benedetto del Tronto.

Simon Yates will defend the trident of Neptune achieved last year. Egan Bernal and Geraint Thomas, Vincenzo Nibali, Nairo Quintana, Mikel Landa, Marc Soler, João Almeida, Jakob Fuglsang, Romain Bardet, Thibaut Pinot, Ilnur Zakarin, Dan Martin and Sergio Higuita will also participate. Primoz Roglic and Tao Geoghegan Hart meet in Paris-Nice, a test with which the Tirreno overlaps, and they are one of the few names that are missing from such a roster of Vueltomaniacs. In recent times the Tirreno has surpassed its French competitor in the bill and in emotion. A good test for the Giro.

And it is that, apart, classics of the stature of Peter Sagan, Wout van Aert, Mathieu van der Poel, Julian Alaphilippe and Greg van Avermaet will be measured in the scheduled ratoneros finals, and sprinters such as Caleb Ewan, Fernando Gaviria, Davide Ballerini and Elia Viviani will meet in the volatas. García Cortina, Aranburu and Gorka Izagirre will be able to enjoy their opportunities. Meanwhile, Filippo Ganna, the infallible world champion of the discipline, seems destined to repeat his triumph in the time trial that will close the event. Let the battle begin.
