Wout van Aert is set to return to Strade Bianche and Tirreno-Adriatico in 2023, having missed those races in favour of riding Paris-Nice this season.

Speaking to WielerFlits , the Belgian has said that his spring campaign will take on a different look to 2022, when he skipped the Cyclocross World Championships and then opened his road season with a win at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

Van Aert has enjoyed success in Italy in the past in the past, winning Strade Bianche and Milan-San Remo in 2020, and then landing two stages en route to second overall at Tirreno-Adriatico in 2021.

"I definitely missed Strade Bianche, as well as Tirreno-Adriatico," Van Aert said of 2022. "I love Tirreno, although the same goes for Paris-Nice. Because I am now focusing on the Cyclocross World Championships at the end of January, my preparation for the spring will be different to last season.

"That means doing some things differently. I definitely see a return to the Italian races. The triptych of Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo is definitely already playing on my mind.
