Join us for live text coverage of Tirreno-Adriatico 2018 Stage 3 from Follonica to Trevi (239! kms). The week-long stage race is the first test for Grand Tour general classification riders and we’re likely to see the big names testing themselves throughout a-week time. From today, March 7, until Tuesday, March 13, 22 teams – 18 of which are World Teams whereas 4 are professional teams – will compete along the roads of Central Italy over sprints, climbs and time trials. It will be definetively one for the punchers today. Greg Van Avermaet (BMC), Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) and Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) are the most favoured pretenders. Chris Froome returns to racing this week after the the Vuelta a Andalucia and the big question mark over his head didn’t break up yet.
