Final KM: Paris-Nice St 3, Tirreno-Adriatico St 1

Race to the Sun stage snowed off and BMC doing their thang at a team time trial in Italy. Ah yes, springtime in Europe, where the schedules of Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico collide.

Paris-Nice, Stage 3, Cusset to Mont Brouilly, 165.5km

The much anticipated first mountain-top finish was cancelled when snow and treacherous road conditions stopped play after 97km of racing. Times do not count toward the general classification so Michael Matthews (Orica-GreenEDGE) retains the leader’s jersey for another day.

Riders got inventive as the temperatures dropped. Direct Energie rocked up at someone’s house…

While the #ArgoSunGod #Eww…

Quick recap of the day in French below, or here for an English version.

Tirreno-Adriatico, Stage 1, Lido di Camaiore to Lido di Camaiore, TTT, 22.7km

It was business as usual for the BMC boys at the Tirreno team time trial opener. The World champions surged along the flat course in a time of 23:55mins beating Etixx-Quick Step by 2sec. FDJ ‘s hard work at this discipline was rewarded with a fantastic third place just 9secs behind the leaders. Daniel Oss was first man over the line for BMC and looks mighty fine in the leaders’s maglia azzurra – such a great reward for the stalwart Italian powerhouse.

Love him…
