Jakob Fuglsang is the top contender to bet on UCI World Tour 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico
Danish cyclist Jakob Fuglsang stands the best chance to win the 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico on the online sportsbooks in Denmark. Last year, Fuglsang recorded his best Tirreno-Adriatico performance with a third-place finish. Now, he stands a good chance to go for victory and win his first Tirreno-Adriatico race this year.
This includes major wins at the Giro di Lombardi (UCI World Tour), Vuelta a Andalucía (UCI Europe Tour). Additionally, he also recorded a second-place finish at the Tour de Pologne (UCI World Tour).
Simon Yates looks to impress on Tirreno-Adriatico debut
According to Unibet Sportsbook, Simon Yates is the second-favourite to bet on UCI World Tour 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico for the win. All eyes will likely be on Simon Yates for several reasons at the Tirreno-Adriatico.
First, he’ll be looking to do one better than his brother Adam who finished second in the 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico race. Additionally, Simon Yates will be looking to lead the pack of British cyclists such as Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.
Fortunately, Yates has shown good progress so far this year ahead of the Italian race increasing his winning chances. This includes a podium finish at the UCI World Tour Tour de Pologne.
Additionally, a Tirreno-Adriatico win will be a good warm-up for the Brit as he prepares for the Giro d’Italia. Consequently, he can mark his 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico with a win with odds at 4.50.
Geraint Thomas among top Brits eyeing the 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico win
British cyclist Geraint Thomas is also among the top hopefuls to bet on UCI World Tour Tirreno-Adriatico on Unibet Sportsbook. Additionally, he’ll also be under pressure to win the Tirreno-Adriatico race after missing out on the Tour de France selection.
However, he’ll need to mindful of top contenders Yates, and Fuglsang who’ve all recorded 2020 UCI World Tour podium finishes.
Promising Russian talent Aleksandr Vlasov looks to prove his worth with the Tirreno-Adriatico win
Alexandr Vlasov completes our list of top Unibet Sportsbook contenders to bet on UCI World Tour 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico. He’s currently considered to be one of the most promising Russian talents in the international cycling scene.
In addition to odds of winning at 7.00, Vlasov has an impressive 2020 record to increase his winning chances. This includes winning the Giro dell’Emilia (UCI Europe Tour) and Mont Ventoux Dénivelé Challenge (UCI Europe Tour).
Additionally, he also recorded podium finishes at the Tour de la Provence, Giro di Lombardia and Route d’Occitanie. However, if the top Russian prospect misses out on the Tirreno-Adriatico win, a podium finish is still achievable.
