Tirreno-Adriatico route changed

French race organisers aren't the only ones changing plans at the last minute - tomorrow's third stage of Tirreno-Adriatico from Tivoli to Torricella will be re-routed as a result of heavy snowfall in the area, with icy conditions on parts of the original race route deemed too dangerous to ride in.

As a result, the peloton will face a slightly longer parcours at 228 kilometres (13 kilometres more), but with just the one GPM (mountain sprint) at km 117.4 in the Torritella area, reaching a height of 1,017 metres, rather than the two mountain primes planned. In addition, feeding will now occur in the town of Posta at km 103.9, and the stage will commence 20 minutes earlier than originally scheduled, at 9:35am.
