From this coming 10 to 17 March, edition 77 of Paris-Nice will kick-off the major European stage race season. Sticking to tradition from the Yvelines Department to the French Riviera, the opening stages promise high-intensity sprints with a battle of generations between Mark Cavendish, Caleb Ewan, André Greipel and Alexander Kristoff. Excluding an unforeseen surprise, the decisive stages begin on day six, with a 25-kilometre time trial, followed by a weekend reserved for the climbers. The battle to come on top on the Col de Turini pass will be between a Columbian armada, led most notably by Nairo Quintana as well as Egan Bernal, and Richie Porte, Simon Yates, defending Paris-Nice champion Marc Soler and Romain Bardet.
