Rigoberto Uran will be the leader of EF Education First-Drapac at Tirreno-Adriatico. The team has its eyes set on the General Classification.

The Colombian will be supported by a team of riders that can help him make the difference in the race. "The primary hope of Tirreno is to be competitive in the general classification with Rigoberto Uran. And a rider like Sacha Modolo is going to be looking at this as his final preparation for Milano-Sanremo," said the team's CEO Jonathan Vaughters.

Simon Clarke will have the work of Road captain. "Tirreno is always interesting because it’s the first big test in Europe, particularly for the GC riders — that and Paris-Nice. So these races are always very good indicators of how good guys are going to be leading into the year," the rider commented. "It’s a nice Tirreno this year because there’s the standard team time trial to start with, and then we’ve got stage one and the second-to-last stage, which are nice sprint stages.

"And having Modolo here and on the team creates a nice new opportunity for us on the flat stages. Then we’ve got two undulating stages, stage three and stage five with nice little finishes that I think suit myself and Sep. Hopefully, between the two of us, we can be competitive in those stages while supporting Rigo."
