- News: Deceuninck-QuickStep confound their rivals with change of sprint tactics. (Cyclingnews) - 'We have different riders who can win and so more options for Milan-San Remo' says Viviani.

- News: Peter Sagan: Things will be totally different on Saturday at Milan-San Remo. (Cyclingnews) - Deceuninck's rivals left embarrassed after Alaphilippe wins Tirreno-Adriatico sprint.

- Results: Alaphilippe wins bunch sprint on stage 6. (Cyclingnews) - Deceuninck-Quickstep train dominates penultimate finale.

- Peter Sagan (Bora-hansgrohe) following Stage 6: "The guys did a very good job today in preparing everything for the sprint. They pulled in the front, controlled the breakaway and rode hard in the finale to lead me out. Unfortunately, I still need more time to get back to my best form. I did the best I could but it wasn't enough to win."

- Jan Valach, Sports Director, Bora-Hansgrohe: "Long and hard stage, up and down for the most part but still with a fast sprint finish. Our goal was to aim at stage victory with Peter. We pulled in the front of the peloton and controlled the 7-man break. Rafał Majka did a very good job in that, put a strong effort and we managed to close the gap and catch the break in the final 3km. Then, Oscar Gatto and Daniel Oss took over and did a good lead-out but, unfortunately, Peter found himself blocked a few metres before the finish and took fifth on the line. These things happen and we have to keep building upon the work done so far."

- News: Roglic anticipates final Tirreno time trial after limiting losses in Recanati. (Cyclingnews) - Jumbo-Visma man has the chance to overhaul Adam Yates on Tuesday.

- News: Adam Yates not focused on overall victory as time trial looms. (Cyclingnews) - Mitchelton-Scott rider says his target is still for stage wins rather than overall glory.

- News: Contrasting emotions for Roglic and Dumoulin after steep climbs spark time gaps. (Cyclingnews) - 'Roglic, with his better time trialling skills, is the bigger favourite now' Dumoulin admits.

- News: Nizzolo sprints to fourth at Tirreno-Adriatico despite early crash. (Cyclingnews) - Italian injured his elbow but will return for stage 4.

- Daniel Oss (Bora-Hansgrohe) following Stage 5: "In the pre-race meeting we talked about going in the breakaway and I think we did a good job there. There is no doubt it was a very hard stage and I think it was very good training for the remaining of the Tirreno-Adriatico and the Milano-Sanremo."

- Enrico Poitschke, Sports Director, Bora-Hansgrohe, after Stage 5: "Yet another hard stage today and we tried again to go in the big breakaway group. Daniel managed to catch it and was there but the final lap proved too tough. At the same time, we were also focused on bringing Davide Formolo and Rafał Majka in a good position in that final lap. The guys were there but in the important moment they were too far in the back of the peloton, so when it split it wasn't possible for them to get back in, despite the very strong effort they put in. The day didn't exactly turn out the way we would have liked or expected but tomorrow is another day, and we'll try to have a good result with Peter."

- News: Vincenzo Nibali: This is the suffering I need. (Cyclingnews) - Italian says Giro d'Italia is his primary goal ahead of Tour de France.

- Results: Fuglsang solos to victory on stage 5. (Cyclingnews) - Yates extends overall lead.

- Jakob Fuglsang (Astana Pro Team) won Stage 5.  Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) extended his overall race lead.

- Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 5: "I got a little bit of time, but ideally Fuglsang wouldn’t have been in front and I could have won the stage, but again the strongest guy won today.  I did what I could on the final climb to drop Roglic and I gained some seconds, I did my best.  In the back of my head I would have liked 45 seconds just to be safe, I’m not sure how much time he [Roglic] look out of me last year, but I think he was top 10 [in the time trial].  But we’ll see, I’ll just do my best and where I end up, I end up. It’s not a TT course that suits me, but I’ll try my best and hopefully it’s enough."

- Matt White (Mitchelton-Scott directeur sportif) after Stage 5: "It’s going to be all to play for in the time trial, there’s still another day to go but Adam has shown that he’s got some very, very good form at the moment.  We finally saw a little chink in the armour of Roglic on an incredibly hard day, I think the gradient where Adam dropped him was maybe 20% and after brutal day yesterday Adam backed it up very well.  The race looks like it’s going to go down to the wire, it’s going to be a matter of seconds that decides this race, 25 seconds on one of the world’s best time trialists is going to be tight.  Tomorrow’s a day for the sprinters, obviously we’ve got to be vigilant at the start as always, but it’s the second and last opportunity for the sprinters so tomorrow will about trying to conserve energy for a time trial that’s going to decide the race."

- News: 66 riders given virtual times to avoid finishing circuit chaos. (Cyclingnews) - Riders stopped from riding final hilly 10km circuit in Fossombrone.

- Results: Lutsenko takes dramatic stage 4 win. (Cyclingnews) - Astana rider crashes twice but comes back to win.

- Alexey Lutsenko (Astana Pro Team) won Stage 4.  Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) remains leader on G.C.

- Davide Formolo (Bora-Hangrohe) following Stage 4: "It was a hard stage, I'd say a chaotic one, and I think we did a good job as a team. Unfortunately, Rafał crashed again, but we are still there and we'll keep fighting. Tomorrow we have another tough stage and we'll see how the legs go."

- Jan Valach, Sports Director, Bora-Hansgrohe: "Today, we tried to go for the stage win with Davide Formolo and Rafał Majka. Our strategy was to send a man if a big breakaway formed. We had Marcus Burghardt in a group of ten riders that managed to have a lead of over 9 minutes. As the stage progressed the break was brought in and, unfortunately, in the final climb, Davide was about 50-60 metres behind the leading group and the blue jersey and was unable to bridge to them. He finished fifth, ahead of the main bunch, so, on the one hand, we can be happy with that but on the other, I think we could have done better in this stage."

- Results: Viviani wins stage 3. (Cyclingnews) - Sagan is second, Gaviria third.

- Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quickstep) won Stage 3.  Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) remains overall leader.

- Enrico Poitschke (Bora-Hansgrohe directeur sportif) after Stage 3: "It was a long stage and our focus was to work for Peter and the sprint finish. The guys did a good job in the stage and in the finale, they were there and brought Peter in a good position. He was the first to launch his sprint and in the end, got second place. It was a very good result, taking into consideration the problems he had during the last weeks. We see this as a sign he's getting stronger every day which, combined with the nice job by the team, makes us feel satisfied."

- Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) following Stage 3: "I knew it wouldn't be an easy sprint but I wanted to give it a try. Although my form is still not at the level it should be right now, I was feeling quite better today. I'd like to thank the rest of the team for their great work, especially in the final kilometres where they put me in a perfect position. It was a nice sprint and close finish, something to be expected when you are against strong sprinters like Gaviria and Viviani. I'm improving day by day and in every stage, we will try to get the best result we can."

- Matt White (Mitchelton-Scott sports director) after Stage 3: "Because of the composition of the breakaway, the highest guy on GC was at six minutes, we didn’t have any direct pressure to do anything today except look after Adam and the boys did a really good job of that.  The pressure was on the sprint teams to chase the break today with it being one of only two opportunities for the sprinters, and so our guys had a relatively easy day.  The race is going to be decided in the next two days and it will be a real classics style of racing and I’m expecting a very aggressive next two days."

- Race leader Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 3: "It was a long day, but the sprinter's teams controlled it all day, so we just sat behind them and tried to save some energy.  In every bunch sprint there’s always the possibility of gaps but the guys guided me really well, especially in the last 20km, we stuck to the left side of the road and we stayed in a good position all the way. So great job by the team and another day in the jersey.  Tomorrow’s not as hard as stage five but it could be decisive so we’ll just wait and see."

- News: Van Avermaet upbeat despite losing out to Alaphilippe at Tirreno. (Cyclingnews) - CCC Team leader already looking ahead to more opportunities for stage wins.

- Davide Formolo (Bora-Hansgrohe): "It was a fast climb and since our chances for a GC position were dashed with the crash yesterday, Daniel tried to attack at the bottom of the last climb and then controlled. When Lutsenko gave it a go, to anticipate the sprint, I tried to follow but it didn't work out and there nothing more we could in order to force an early sprint."

- Enrico Poitschke, Bora-Hansgrohe Sports Director following Stage 2: "After yesterday's bad crash we wanted to see how Rafał and Oscar would feel in the stage. In addition, with Peter still recovering from his sickness we didn't know how it would play out. Overall, the guys felt OK but then we had more bad luck. Peter had a puncture going downhill, about 15km to the finish, and it wasn't possible for him to get back to the main group. The rest of the guys took their chances, Davide tried as well in the final kilometres but it didn't work out. I could say it was a normal racing day for us and we look forward to the upcoming stages."

- Matt White (Mitchelton-Scott directeur sportif) after Stage 2: "It was great that Heppy could take the jersey yesterday and we weren’t going to throw it away that’s for sure.  The boys rode a nice intelligent race today, we wanted to have a crack at the stage and we did, Adam was fifth on the day and it’s been a low stress day.  It was a long day in the office for some of the boys, with Edmo and Heppy who chased, but we wanted to give Adam a good chance of a result today and he did a good job."

- Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 2 where he moved into the race lead: "This kind of finish doesn’t suit me down to the ground, it’s more for the punchier guys like Alaphilippe and Van Avermaet, so I’m happy with my position and we’ll just take it day by day and see what tomorrow brings.  It’s good, I’m not sure how long I’ll hold onto it [the race lead], but we’ll try our best and see how it goes.  After yesterday’s big ride in the TTT, it was another hard stage today, a different kind of stage but I’m happy with my position, happy with my condition.  Tomorrow’s a sprint stage then we have a few punchy, tricky stages and like I said yesterday, there’s no real hard, long mountain stage, a lot of hard short stages, so we’ll see how the legs are and take it from there."

- News: Alaphilippe keeps success coming for Deceuninck-QuickStep. (Cyclingnews) - Frenchman puts TTT disappointment behind and targets further success.

- Results: Alaphilippe wins stage 2 in Pomerance. (Cyclingnews) - Van Avermaet is second, Adam Yates takes overall lead.

- Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quickstep) won Stage 2.  Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) is new race leader.

- News: Bouhanni eliminated from Tirreno-Adriatico after losing contact in team time trial. (Cyclingnews) - 'He did two turns on the front and let himself get dropped' says Damiani.

- News: Geraint Thomas upbeat despite damaging time loss at Tirreno TTT. (Cyclingnews) - Team Sky lose 47 seconds in opening team time trial at Italian stage race.

- More from Michael Hepburn (Mitchelton-Scott) after Stage 1: "We’ve been here before and gone off early and the wind changes, but finally this year we had a bit of luck on our side.  We were quietly confident in our team, we have a lot of big boys, a lot of powerful time trialists and today was one of our chances to get some time and we did that."

- Race leader Michael Hepburn (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 1: "Team trials are very technical these days and it’s something our team enjoys doing, especially myself.  Tirreno is one of my favourite races of the year, I always seem to be in good condition here, but to be completely honest, I don’t deserve the jersey more than anyone else in the squad, that was just the order we were coming into the home straight.  It was a good little advantage for us being last off, knowing the times and also with the weather, the road dried up a little bit."

- Adam Yates after Mitchelton-Scott's victory in the Team Time Trial: "Super start! We’ve been trying to win a TTT for a long time, I think I’ve been here four or five years now and every time we try, every year we bring a super strong team and we’ve been close and now we’ve finally got it!  Tonight we’ll look at the standings and work out where we are, it’s going to be tough, there’s no big, super hard mountain stages this year, but we’ll see and just take it stage by stage."

- Jan-Niklas Droste, Bora-Hansgrohe Team Doctor: "We had an unlucky day, marred by a bad crash. Oscar Gatto has quite a lot of bruises while Rafał Majka went down hard. He has hematomas and abrasions on his head and we will have to run additional tests and diagnostics in order to evaluate whether the impact caused a concussion or not."

- Enrico Poitschke, BORA-hansgrohe Sports Director: "Unfortunately, we had a very bad day. Just 3.5km into the stage, a spectator crashed into the team, taking down two riders and splitting up the squad. From then on our guys weren't in the best mood but still gave a fight. The good news is that Rafał Majka is set to continue the race. He doesn't look good after the crash but he will be there. Our chances at the GC are probably gone now but we will try to fight for, possibly, a stage win that will keep our spirits high. Still, it was a very bad day for us."

- Two Bora-Hansgrohe riders crashed during the Stage 1 TTT.  Said Maciej Bodnar post-stage: "It's a pity we started the Tirreno-Adriatico with such an unlucky incident. I felt well and I think we were doing a good time-trial but the crash so early in the stage was not a good thing at all. We lost our momentum and we had only five riders left for most of the stage, so it was difficult to be competitive. I wish Rafał and Oscar a speedy recovery."

- News: More steep climbs but no mountain finish for 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico. (Cyclingnews) - Race of Two Seas tweaked to finisseur rather than Grand Tour riders.

- Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team): "I always enjoy racing at Tirreno-Adriatico. I have some really nice memories there with my overall win and stage wins over the years so I would like to add to the tally in the CCC Team jersey. The team time trial on stage one will be the first one for most of us this year and given we have won the last three times, it is always an important stage for the team so I hope we can start the week with a good result. From there, I think I have a chance in a few of the stages so we will see how the race goes.  A stage race like Tirreno-Adriatico is the best way to get some solid racing kilometers in the legs so if I can finish the race with good sensations then I will head to the rest of the Classics with a lot of confidence."

- CCC Team lineup for the 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico:

Joey Rosskopf (USA)
Michael Schär (SUI)
Greg Van Avermaet (BEL)
Gijs Van Hoecke (BEL)
Nathan Van Hooydonck (BEL)
Guillaume Van Keirsbulck (BEL)
Łukasz Wiśniowski (POL)
 
Sports Directors: Valerio Piva (ITA), Fabio Baldato (ITA)

- Valerio Piva (CCC Team d.s.): "A good result on stage one can make a difference on the General Classification, because there is a big chance to take time in the team time trial. Then, we will take things day by day and try to win a stage with Greg. We don’t really need to protect Greg every day, so the other riders will all have a chance to take an opportunity and race aggressively."

- Valerio Piva (CCC Team directeur sportif): "The parcours of this year’s Tirreno-Adriatico is a little bit different to the last years. It’s not a really mountainous race with uphill finishes, it’s more of a traditional Tirreno-Adriatico with a lot of up and down undulating terrain. There is one really hard stage with a final circuit and short climb, so I think Greg Van Avermaet can finish with a good result on this parcours. However, the main objective is to try and win a stage and finish the preparation for the Classics."

- Team Bahrain-Merida line-up for Tirreno-Adriatico:

Vincenzo Nibali
Damiano Caruso
Rohan Dennis
Phil Bauhaus
Jan Tratnik
Matej Mohoric
Marcel Sieberg

- Gorazd Stangelj (Bahrain-Merida): "With this year's route, the race should be much more open. It will be very important to have a good start with TTT on Wednesday and then manage the day by day race. For the Overall, I would focus on Vincenzo Nibali and Damiano Caruso, while Rohan Dennis will make a big contribution in the two time trials."

- Rohan Dennis (Bahrain-Merida) ahead of the 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico: "I'm pretty motivated to help the TT team and also the final TT.  The rest is all about maximizing the benefit I get from helping the team in the road races for the upcoming races."

- Damiano Caruso (Bahrain-Merida): "My condition is similar to last year if not better. The crash at the Uae Tour has slowed me a bit, but I think I can make a good Tirreno. Only thing, it’s pity for me that there are no big climbs."

- Marcel Kittel after his Stage 6 victory had this to say in the post-race press conference: "This second stage victory isn’t necessarily better than the first one, which was my first pro win in Italy, so it was special. Today’s win is also special because it’s the birthday of Nathan Haas and it wasn’t an easy stage at all. I’m proud of the team. Katusha-Alpecin has a big potential in leadout with Rick Zabel and Marco Haller. With rouleurs like Alex Dowsett and Tony Martin, we can combine things really well. Today’s victory will keep everyone in the team motivated."
