The racing is coming thick and fast over the next few weeks and Team Sky can now confirm our line ups for Strade Bianche, Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico.

 

Michal Kwiatkowski returns to action at Strade Bianche (Saturday 5 March) and will be making his first appearance in the race since winning it back in 2014.

 

He edged out Peter Sagan on that occasion, and will be looking to impress again after being forced to miss the Volta ao Algarve through illness.

 

The former world champion is joined on the Tuscan gravel roads by Polish compatriot Michal Golas, Andy Fenn, Peter Kennaugh and Lars Petter Nordhaug, while Gianni Moscon and Salvatore Puccio are excited to ride on home turf for the first time this season.

 

Paris-Nice commences 24 hours later (Sunday 6 March) and Geraint Thomas will be leading the charge in France, going for back-to-back wins after triumphing at the Volta ao Algarve last month.

 

He is joined by fellow Brits Luke Rowe, Ian Stannard and Ben Swift, while Ian Boswell, Sergio Henao, Mikel Nieve and Nicolas Roche will provide a wealth of support when the race hits the mountains.

 

Tirreno-Adriatico follows on Wednesday 9 March, and the team will have various cards to play in that race with Kwiatkowski, Wout Poels and Leopold Konig all capable of being in the mix for overall honours.

 

Elia Viviani will also be vying for sprint victories in Italy, with Golas, Kennaugh and Puccio rounding out another formidable squad. Vasil Kiryienka makes the trip too, and will don his iconic rainbow jersey during the final time trial.
