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 as the finale suits his characteristics. For Warren we will see how he can compete and see how he has recovered since La Vuelta.”
