Now in its 58th edition, the seven-day Tirreno-Adriatico has established itself as one of the cycling calendar's most important early season stage races.  

The Italian event runs from the country's west coast to the east, taking in seafront scenery, as well as the tough peaks of the Apennines. 

This year's race opens with an individual time trial in Lido di Camaiore, before dealing equal chances for the peloton's sprinters and climbers over the ensuing week. 

Among those competing in the 2023 event are two-time world champion Julian Alaphilippe, Tour de France stage win record holder Mark Cavendish and cyclo-cross legend Mathieu van der Poel. For the full list of riders, visit our race route and start list page

One notable absentee is Tadej Pogačar, the winner of the past two editions of Tirreno-Adriatico. The Slovenian has chosen instead to race Paris-Nice as he prepares for another summer assault on the Tour de France
