Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile

women|Start: 5 July|Finish: 14 July

Team Sunweb coach Nicolas Marche: “The Giro is the longest and one of the most beautiful stages races in the women’s calendar. It is always difficult but this year looks set to be a really hard Giro and we’ll see the best climbers in the world head to the race. We arrive at the Giro with six motivated riders, all with different roles within the team. Lucinda will be our card to play in the GC: she’s just back from altitude camp and motivated to repeat her performance that saw her come fifth last year. Juliette starts her second Giro and this year she will try to stay as long as possible with Lucinda and potentially fight for the young rider classification. Floortje and Leah will be there to support the GC riders in the mountains but also to fight for stage wins for the team. Julia will be our road captain and use her experience to guide the team, and Pernille arrives at the Giro in good form to support the team, adding a lot of firepower.”
