A King in Europe

After Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) took the first King of the Sprint title in Australia, then took it to Abu Dhabi, where he first lost and then regained it, he will finally bring it to Europe, by riding Tirreno-Adriatico from 8 to 14 March.

In Italy, he will meet Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) again, who got second behind Ewan three times in the Tour Down Under, and Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data), who won the first stage in the Abu Dhabi Tour, when Ewan crashed. And then there is Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step Floors), who beat Ewan last year in Tirreno-Adriatico.

The first sprint chance will probably be stage 3, from Monterotondo Marittimo to Montalto di Castro.
