Past Giro d'Italia leaders Cadel Evans and Taylor Phinney highlight the BMC Racing Team's roster for this year's race.

Evans returns to the Italian grand tour for the first time since 2010, when he wore the maglia rosa leader's jersey for one day and won a stage and the points classification during his season as the world road champion.

 

Evans changed his race programme to include the Giro d'Italia as he recovers from the virus that affected his 2012 season. He last rode the Giro d'Italia in 2010 when he won the rain-soaked stage to Montalcino on the dirt roads of Tuscany. He also wore the pink jersey for a day, won the points jersey and was fifth overall behind winner Ivan Basso.

 

Phinney won the Stage 1 individual time trial last year and held the race lead until the Stage 4 team time trial in his first participation. Joining them on the BMC Racing Team's nine-man roster are Adam Blythe, Steve Cummings, Klaas Lodewyck, Steve Morabito, Daniel Oss, Ivan Santaromita and Danilo Wyss. 

 

Evans and Phinney will be backed by Adam Blythe, Steve Cummings, Klaas Lodewyck, Steve Morabito, Daniel Oss, Ivan Santaromita and Danilo Wyss.

 

Blythe could also challenge in the sprints, while Cummings and Oss could target stage victories.


BMC Racing Team Giro d'Italia roster:
Adam Blythe, Steve Cummings, Cadel Evans, Klaas Lodewyck, Steve Morabito, Daniel Oss, Taylor Phinney, Ivan Santaromita, Danilo Wyss.
