Ciclissimo! is pleased to be racing from the sea to the land beyond at the 2017 Tirreno-Adriatico with Andrea Peron as Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s first all diabetes pro-cycling team, make their debut at this prestigious and stunning Italian WorldTour stage race. Follow the 28 year old sprinter from Veneto as he traverses between the two seas of Italia which give the race its name.
Stage 3: Monterotondo Marritimo – Montalto Di Castro, 204 km
Fine wines, cuisine and beautiful women: Tirreno-Adriatico’s Stage 3 has it all! The Race of the Two Seas continues to thread its way south via the Tuscan idyll of Maremma before nipping over the border into Lazio for a short, sharp uphill finish into the hometown of Alice Sabatini, Miss Italy 2015. It’s yet more typical Tuscan fayre as the race picks up where it left off yesterday to tackle another 200km+ punchy stage through the rolling paese and borghi of Italia’s western coast from which some of the finest DOCG wines originate.
Maremma was used as the location for some of the scenes in the wonderful 1999 film The Talented Mr Ripley, the narrative taking us on a journey from the western coast of Italia up to Venice in the north-easterly region of Veneto – an intriguing reversal of Andrea’s viaggio to the final scene of stage 3!
