Yeah this is the sort of race where San Giacomo being slightly too easy makes a huge difference and things really only go down there if Vingegaard really wants to humiliate everyone.

Not even an attempt at a Muri stage or even a stage like in Tortoreto last year is really bad IMO. I'm happy they got rid of the TTT but it being replaced by another sprint is really disappointing to me.
 
Shockingly poor route. No true hilly madness stage and the big mtf is after the only other tougher stage meaning they may all wait for the MTF.

Last stage would be great fun as an 81km stage but the San Benedetto del Tronto laps kill any chance of interesting racing.

The most annoying thing is that San Benedetto is surrounded by prime murito terrain, it makes no sense that they insist on having that stage be a sprint year after year.
 
To be honest Paris Nice has always been the superior race, with the exception of a few recent additions of Tirreno which were great. And to be fair this route is still better than those really *** years where the TTT was all that decided the race, like 2018
They could make TA so much better, the winter is less severe and the mountains more hospitable. That they don't only indicates obsequiessness to tradition.
