Adriatica Lonica Tour UCI 2.1
The Serenissima Adriatica Lonica is a 5 day Tour starting the 20th June to the 24th June 2018 in the Republic of Venice. Mark Cavendish, Mark Renshaw and Dimension Data Sprint Squad will add this event to their program as extra preparation for the 2018 Tour de France given the unlucky run the world’s best sprinter has had this season with falls/ injuries and sickness.

The event starts with a 24km Team Time Trial at Musile di Piave; followed by stages to Maser  (150km), Passo Giau (160) and the long Grado stage of 230km, before the short ride of 125km to Trieste on the final day.

The Dimension Data team consists Bathurst’s Mark Renshaw, Team leader Mark Cavendish, Nickolas Dlamini, Ryan Gibbons, Reinardt Janse Van Rensburg and Jay Robert Thomson. There will be plenty of competition in the Italian event with the Quick-Step Sprint train will be looking to dominate for in form Elia Viviani while Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek – Segafredo), Simone Consonni (UAE-Emirates) and Italy’s Matteo Trentin will ensure the bunch sprints will be hard fought affairs.
