I used to like better Paris-Nice, but the last two years I like better Tirreno-Adriatico.

Alberto: It was the sign I made for showing to a friend I was dedicating the victory to him, and I have continued to use it.

I generally prefer Tirreno so I might be a bit bias, but this year Tirreno should be super given the names of big riders that are going to participate. I already know which one I'm going to watch, I hope the route is going to be worthy. My guess is time trial the last day same as last year, basically I'm expecting a very similar route as last year.

A ttt at the beginning, a tt at the end, a "real mountain stage with a steep ascent of 12 km", two for sprinters, two for classics' hunters. That's formula of this year's TA.
I hoped for a tt in the middle and conclusion with "real mountain stage".
Good to see organizers aware of (and thrilled with) the field announced for their race and fans' expectations.
Promises a good race.
