Wout van Aert will target the overall classification at Tirreno-Adriatico as he looks to develop his talents and abilities beyond cyclo-cross, the Classics, and time trialing.   

He may struggle against the likes of Egan Bernal, Tadej Pogačar and 2020 winner Simon Yates on Saturday's key mountain finish to Prati di Tivo, but he could pick up precious time bonuses in other stages and pull back a significant amount of time in the flat 10.1km final time trial.
