This year's Tirreno-Adriatico, rescheduled for September 7-14, will consist of eight stages instead of the usual seven, offering an extra opportunity for the climbers in Umbria, as well as stages for the sprinters and finisseurs.

The Italian stage race will be held during the second week of the Tour de France but hopes to attract many of the riders who will then go on to target the Giro d'Italia in October, including Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo), Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and 2019 corsa rosa winner Richard Carapaz (Team Ineos).
