Trek is hoping Fabian Cancellara can get his second victory of 2015 during the 5.7km opening test, which has replaced the team time trial that was originally planned. Cancellara won a stage at the Tour of Oman but has revealed he was sick after returning home. He is a four-time former world time trial champion but has not won a time trial since the 2013 Vuelta a Espana.
The team's general classification hopes rest with co-leaders Bauke Mollema and Julian Arredondo.
Trek Factory Racing for Tirreno-Adriatico: Fabian Cancellara, Julián Arredondo, Stijn Devolder, Markel Irizar Aranburu, Bauke Mollema, Yaroslav Popovych, Hayden Roulston, Jesse Sergent.
