    I'll add that the weather is said to be not much (if at all) better than today.

    And the seven guys I'll be rooting for:

    it came down to the expected selective race, won by Adam Yates ahead of some Colombian from Movistar only Joel ever heard about before. The commentator was screaming "Betancur, Betancur", but unfortunately it wasn't him

    Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali

    March 23rd to 26th

    The Settimana Internazionale di Coppi e Bartali – Trofeo Banca Interprovinciale 2017 was presented the other day. It s a bike race run over four days in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Between 1999 and 2000 it was called Memorial Cecchi Gori while it was also previously held as Giro di Sardegna and Giro di Sicilia. The race is named after Italian cyclists Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. Since 2005, it has been organised as a 2.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour. It is considered one of the most important stage races in Italy and is organized by Gruppo Sportivo Emilia.

    As usual, the race will follow the same pattern as usual, starting with a double stage on day 1, giving the sprinters a chance before heading into the 4 men TTT. The two hilly stages on day 2 and 4 are likely to decide the gc, with another chance for the sprinters in between.

    1a tappa - 1a semitappa: Gatteo - Gatteo 97.8 km



    1a tappa - 2a semitappa: Gatteo a mare - Gatteo (cronosquadre) 13.3 km



    2a tappa: Riccione - Sogliano sul Rubicone 130 km



    3a tappa: Crevalcore - Crevalcore 171.4 km



    4a tappa: Fiorano modenese - Sassuolo 160 km



    The race usually attracts a good range of decent riders, so that we had some strong guys on the honor roll over the past years:

    1st 2nd 3rd
    2016      *ru   FIRSANOV    *it   FINETTO    *it   MOSCON
    2015      *za   MEINTJES    *gb   SWIFT    *hr   KVASINA

    2012      *cz   BARTA    *pl   HUZARSKI    *it   ULISSI

    Rumors say, it's due to the nice podium gifts, that this year the list of participators features even three World Tour teams - two more than in the past two editions - and also some other interesting names
    • #cannondale Cannondale Drapac Pro CT: Villella, Dombrowski
    • #sky Team Sky: Viviani, Sebastian Henao, Thomas, Deignan
    • #dimension Team Dimension Data: Pauwels, Venter
    • #teamit Nazionale Italia
    • #amore Amore & Vita – Selle SMP: Halilaj, Zamparella
    • #androni Androni Giocattoli – Sidermec: Torres, Bernal, Cattaneo

    • #fortuneo Fortuneo Vital Concept: Feillu, Bouet, Sepulveda
    • #gazprom Gazprom Rusvelo: Foliforov, Firsanov
    • #gm GM Europa Ovini: Pacchiardo
    • #kolss Kolss Team: Polivoda, Buts
    • #lokosphinx Lokosphinx: Evtushenko, Sokolov
    • #minsk Minsk Cycling Club: Bazhkou, Ramanau. Papok

    • #wiggins Team Wiggins: Wood, Fedrigo
    • #tirol Tirol Cycling Team: Fortin, Frankhauser
    • #unieuro Unieuro Trevigiani: Viel
    • #wilier Wilier Triestina: Belletti, Pozzato, Mareczko
    #sky Geraint Thomas is likely to be the favorite, but Androni brings all the firepower they have, and are likely to be super motivated - same as Firsanov, trying to defend his title for Gazprom. You can never be sure if the same applies for the French teams, but both Direct Energie and Fortuneo look very good on paper as well.

    A very interesting addition are the small Colombian mountain goats of #strongman Bicicletas Strongman, coming to Europe for the first time (I think). And no, Pierrick Fedrigo has not signed for Team Wiggins.

    There will be no live coverage, but highlights should be available in the evening, probably also unrestricted on PMG Sports website now.

    the full start list is now available. Sky brings only 6 men, putting Kenny in the 2 men team for the TTT, so that doesn't look like they are too confident in his GC ambitions :lol

    there are some interesting riders in the race though, among them #gazprom Firsanov & Foliforov, #cannondale Dombrowski & Slagter, #teamit Finetto, #androni Bernal & Cattaneo, #bardiani Pirazzi & Ciccone, #fortuneo Bouet & Sepulveda and #baku Pozdnyakov.

    edit: ah, well, and #sky Viviani for the sprints of course, facing #androni Malucelli and #wilier Mareczko

    Highlights will be available on Rai Sport, Bike Channel and PMG Sport (online) at 18:00 cet each evening

    In #2043 of races I know nothing about  is THIS... But I am INTRIGUED.

    Excellent question. All I can come up with is: Why not? :dizzy

    It gives the big teams or those strong at TTT less of an advantage (which, some would say, is an unfair advantage) over the smaller teams less accomplished in TTTing. In that way, it's actually a good idea.
    And it means that spectators will have twice as many passes of riders!

    I think it's a great idea. I do like a TTT in it's proper place.  But overly long in shorter stage races unbalances the whole race. This is a good way to rectify that, though I can see it's not going to work everywhere.

    This race is a long time fav of mine.
    No silly big mountains where sod all happens.
    Just lots nasty rampy stuff to splinter the race into pieces.

    I am excited to follow it this year - and tending to agree about big set piece long haul drags \o/

    yeah 20th from 44 teams, and some not even that bad. That's quite impressive I'd say.

    Interesting that Arredondo (according to PCS) came 35th in the TTT after not finishing the 1st stage btw :P
