RCS already knows who intends to race their race. Thus, I think they'll design a route which should provide thrill and suspense till the last kilometers.
I just wonder if they'll conclude GC battle with a climb, or it will be like last year in a tt.
I'd give the last word to climbers. Should be more entertaining that way... Contador, Rodriguez, Nibali etc. attacking, Wiggo defending.

yes, logical conclusion. Mid race TT more likely.

Hopefully, the top and tail with TT(T) will get annoying very quickly. Macerata TT from a few years ago would be good, or a lap around Chieti.

This poll was basically on par before it was bumped yesterday. Now TA leads with a good advantage. Funny

Recently Tirreno Adriatico has a better startlist (es. last year Cancellara, Gilbert, Evans, Nibali, Sagan, Cavendish, Purito VS Wiggo, Valverde, Boonen)

Evans and Gilbert were not great though last year.

Hopefully if they ride it this year they will be.

valverde won't ride it,choosing a very light start of the season to peak in tour-vuelta-worlds.
