Team DSM coach Matt Winston: “We’re looking forward to continue our Italian block of racing at Tirreno-Adriatico. The race provides something for everyone with time trials, days for the sprinters and stages in the hills, some of which include typically hard Tirreno-Adriatico ‘muros’. We will focus on the sprint days with Alberto as our finisher there, while in the climbing stages we will look to protect Romain. We have a team that has come out of their first races of the season with confidence and we’re looking forward to being part of some exciting racing throughout the week.”
