Default Which one is the best race: Tirreno-Adriatico or Paris Nice?

Considering the level of participants from the past two years, I think Tirreno-Adriatico has really become the best of the two.
What's your opinion?

Thanks Fetisoff for trying to veer my first ever thread off topic.
(I agree with you that the Giro is great, by the way)

Nah, I was just trying for you to insert a poll into this thread, which I see you've now done.

Honestly i don't like both, that's why i would prefer the race with harder climbs. A couple of years ago PN included stump of Mont Ventoux. As I see, Tirreno has only Monte Lupone, right?

After stage 2 of P-N, I think the Frogs will hold the upper hand this year.
