The 66th Tirreno Adriatico starts on the 13th of March 2019. This edition features no real mountain stages, but there will be plenty of climbing involved since the race organizers advertise with the quote “The champions vs the ‘Wall’”. Traditionally the Tirreno starts with a team time trial of almost 22 kilometers. The prediction that we present in Table 1 is for the Tirreno Zweeler poule. In the Zweeler poules you only need to select the outright winner for a TTT, so the TTT results do not contribute to the rider scores below. Keep this in mind when you want to use these scores for other bets.
Besides the team time trial disclaimer there are the usual remarks:
- The predictions are generated for the riders on the startlist that we downloaded the 13th of March from Zweeler. This startlist is not definite and we will try to update the prediction once the final startlist is available.
- Our predictions are based on quantitative models and are presented in hard tables instead of stories.
- We are continuously improving our prediction models and some type of predictions may be better than others (especially the classics/single day race algorithms have room for improvement).
- Always combine these cycling predictions with other information.
