Tadej Pogacar and Fernando Gaviria will be in charge of UAE Team Emirates' glory hunting in Tirreno-Adriatico.

Less than a week after fighting hard in Strade Bianche, Pogacar continues his Italian campaign in the race of the two seas -where he will start for the first time in his career. The rider will be targetting the General Classification of the Italian race just weeks after he took the overall victory at the UAE Tour, the first World Tour race of the season.

Meanwhile, Fernando Gaviria -whose best position in the sprints of the Emirati race was the fifth at the sixth stage- will return to the race where he has taken two stage victories in 2016 and 2017 and after finishing in the third place of the points classification in 2020.

"It's my first time heading to Tirreno-Adriatico and I'm pretty excited about it," said Pogacar. "The race seems to have a bit of everything: climbing, flat and the final TT so we will be fighting for every stage. I'll aim to give the GC a good go and then we'll also target sprint victories. Hopefully we can continue the good work we did at the UAE Tour."

UAE Team Emirates' roster for Tirreno-Adriatico (March 10-16):

Davide Formolo
Fernando Gaviria
Rafal Majka
Ivo Oliveira
Tadej Poga?ar
