New dates: from Monday 7 to Sunday 13 March, 7 stages and 1123 kilometers. The total difference in height is 14 thousand meters, a record value testifying to the difficulty of this race. For the first time the Tirreno will end on Sunday and this will allow you to experience a long weekend in the Marche region.

the stages

Departure from Lido di Camaiore with an individual time trial of 13.9 km and conclusion in San Benedetto del Tronto not with the time trial but with a sprint stage: it had been 12 years since there was no sprint in San Benedetto on the seafront. An important test for the Milan-Sanremo which will take place on Saturday 19 March. There will be no stage with an uphill finish but the double climb of Monte Carpegna, a climb dear to Merckx who achieved one of the most beautiful feats here at the 1973 Giro d’Italia. But it was also the classic climb of Marco Pantani’s training. The sprint stages are those of Sovicille and Terni. Tougher days in Bellante and above all Fermo, with the Marche walls: stage dedicated to Michele Scarponi for the five years since his death. The finish is in the historic center where Sagan won.

the big ones

As for participation, the two-time King of the Tour, Pogacar, winner in 2021, are expected; the two-time world champion Alaphilippe; Sagan, Evenepoel and our Vincenzo Nibali.
