Tirreno-Adriatico 2024 – Stage 6 Preview

We have got another mountain waiting for the riders tomorrow, this time an even more selective one.


This is likely the hardest climb we’ve seen so far this season. Cagli (Monte Petrano) is a leg breaker. Plus, the riders get to visit the old dwarven kingdom of Moria, a steep climb but still too far from the line to any moves.

The riders go in all sorts of directions tomorrow, two of the climbs are in an eastern direction, while Moria is in a western direction.

Here you have the Moria climb. It starts 29 km from the line. The surface looks smooth.

And the Monte Petrano. The decisive climb. I’d expect Vingegaard to attack on the steep part, maybe he will even use Uijtdebroecks.


Not a lot of wind. I think the trees cover most of the cross-headwind on the last climb.


Vingegaard – he will win again tomorrow.

Ayuso – He is in the rough stop, needing to cover a lot of moves in order to keep his podium. I will gladly be the first to say, I think he will run into problems tomorrow.

O’Connor – He chases the podium. It is to his advantage he doesn’t need to cover any moves, as he had to in UAE Tour. I imagine he will be one of the best tomorrow.

Hindley – same goes for Hindley. He will finish on the podium. He is one of the best pure climbers in the world.

Arensman – a real test for him. I hope he can cling on to the top-5.

Uijtdebroecks – we will see if he gets to work tomorrow. I imagine he will and that will costs him a top result. A top-10.

Del Toro – let’s see what he can do on a climb like this. This is different from yesterday. He was one of the best in the U23 category, a top-10 tomorrow will be a huge result.

Mas – doesn’t seem in form.

Poole – I hope to see him go better tomorrow. He could almost follow the best today.

Sosa – he should have some freedom as Mas is not in shape. A top-10 with a chance of a top-5. He is a good pure climber.

Who will win?

I will take a win for Jonas Vingegaard again.
