Tirreno-Adriatico 2012

Indicatore TA 2011 O.O
Now I see why Andy Schleck doesn`t do it this year: it`s so far away from Florence that to go to Paris-Nice is easier for me!! ;) Of course I am joking but look: the race starts from the south coast of Tuskany, heads to Indicatore (Arezzo) and finish on the Adriatico coast. 
BDW I wonder: a finish and a start in Indicatore. WTF?! I have been there last year: it`s a small village... ehm... a group of houses plus a bar in the middle of nothing, no climbs around, nothing special in any way, hard to reach if not by bike or by car, complete chaos to park team buses. In fact almost no audience (press, staff and relatives excluded). Just one toilet, in the bar. Mah...
Evans and Contador will be there they say. The last one if still allowed to race of course...
