Serving as the precursor for the prestigious La Classicissima the following week, this year's Tirreno-Adriatico sees something of a shake up for the 56-year-old race which cuts through the central Italian regions of Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo and Le Marche on its way from Italy's west to east coasts.

For the first time since 2010, the final stage in San Benedetto del Tronto is not a time trial, while the prologue has been replaced with an individual affair against the clock in the town of Lido di Camaiore.

Last year's winner Tadej Pogačar is well-backed to repeat the feat and defend his title, with Jumbo-Visma duo Remco Evenepoel and Jonas Vingegaard Ridley tipped to provide the biggest challenge. Read on for everything you need to know to watch a Tirreno-Adriatico live stream from anywhere in the world today.
