We were looking forward to today’s third Tirreno-Adriatico stage, because it would be the first chance for the sprinters in the Italian stage race, and King of the Sprint Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) was taking part. Until he crashed out of the second stage yesterday, that is. DNF Ewan and gone was the chance for a seventh title race. Luckily, we’ll soon see Ewan race again:
So, Milan-Sanremo could be our next title race, although the season’s first Monument is rarely decided in a real mass sprint.
