Team Giant-Alpecin have announced their line-ups for Milano-Torino and Il Lombardia.

 

After Tre Valli Varesine, Team Giant-Alpecin lines up for the second of three Italian races this week at Milano-Torino. The 97th edition will take place on Wednesday 28th September on an almost identical course to the last year’s race, relatively steady and flat until the final 25km, where two sharp climbs will effectively decide the outcome for a total distance of 186km.

Coach Aike Visbeek (NED) said: "We have selected a strong team with the objective of racing aggressively here in Italy and aiming to be present in the breakaways. The important moment of the parcours will be the finale where the riders have to twice tackle the Superga climb on the outskirts of Torino, so we have to stay attentive and be at the front of the bunch.

"Our aim is to perform well with Simon [Geschke] as the finale suits his characteristics. For Warren [Barguil] we will see how he can compete and see how he has recovered since La Vuelta."


The third race in Italy this week is the final WorldTour outing of the season, the 'Race of the Falling Leaves' - Il Lombardia. The 110th edition on Saturday 1st October is a 241km hilly course from Como to Bergamo. In total, the race will feature 4,400 meters of climbing as two new climbs have been added in the finale, the Sant’Antonio Abbandonato and Miragolo San Salvatore.

"We start Lombardia with nearly the same team as Milano-Torino and we will be looking for another good team performance," explained coach Aike Visbeek (NED). "The race organisers have made the last 100km of the course more difficult compared to previous editions, which should make it an interesting race.

"We also continue with the aim of racing offensively and we should be able to make an impact on this race. We are hoping to have a strong ride with Tom who is riding well at the moment and it will be a good race that fits in towards the World Championships in Qatar. He is capable of overcoming the climbs and he will be well supported by the team."​
