Rabobank's rising star Thomas Dekker will ride the Italian Tirreno-Adriatico stage race (March 8-14) instead of Paris-Nice (March 5-12), according to the ANP news agency. Rabobank decided to send Dekker to Italy because this year's race includes a time trial, while Paris-nice has no race against the clock aside from its short opening prologue. Rabobank will be hoping that Dekker can repeat the 200 success of his namesake Erik, whose took the lead in that year's time trial and retained it to the finish.
