Cycling’s leading stage hunters, sprinters, finisseurs and time-trial specialists will be at the start line of the 56th edition of Tirreno-Adriatico Eolo. Winner of Strade Bianche and Milan-Sanremo 2020 Van Aert will make his debut at the Corsa dei Due Mari this year. Among the big names chasing the wins on the two finisseurs’ stages, as well as the ‘Muri stage’ (arriving in Castelfidardo), are cyclocross world champion and winner of Strade Bianche Eolo Mathieu van der Poel, road world champion Julian Alaphilippe, three-time road world champion Peter Sagan and Olympic champion Greg van Avermaet.
