Nicolas Roche will take on the role of road captain for Team Sunweb at Tirreno-Adriatico (2.UWT) which starts on Wednesday. The team will be riding in support of Tom Dumoulin who will be aiming for the general classification. The race starts with a 21.5-kilometre team time-trial in Lido di Camaiore.

Lining up alongside Roche and Dumoulin in the seven-day race will be Søren Kragh Andersen, Nikias Arndt, Chad Haga, Sam Oomen and Robert Power.

“On Wednesday we start the seven-day Tirreno Adriatico, beginning with the traditional 21.5 kilometres opening team time trial, followed by two relatively flat stages and three demanding stages before a final 10.1 kilometres individual time trial,” said Team Sunweb coach Luke Roberts.

“With Tom we chase a good result in the overall classification and we bring a very solid support team to Italy for this goal. Nicholas will be our road captain and we’ll look to set ourselves up for a good GC position right from the opening team time trial.”
