    Quite a few big names missing this year - Tirreno-Adriatico seems to have overtaken PN as the most important early season (European) stage race - but the course has been designed for maximum racing excitement and it should be a very open contest with a good number of genuine contenders for the overall victory.

    Live coverage is just about to start on Eurosport - Juan-Antonio is doing his stage preview at the moment...

    TVG ought to have been a contender for this, but putting himself out of the running early on is at least true to form.

    Rolland, Roelandts and Perichon have a one minute gap on the peloton with 30km to go. Looks like being a bunch finish - albeit a reduced bunch, assuming the final climb is tough enough to rule out the pure sprinters.

    In other news, Porte is already out of Tirreno-Adriatico before it has even started. Some people really are bad luck magnets. ^_^

    That was very close. Looks like Haussler edged it over Demare.

    Impressive late surge by Wellens and Laporte too.
