Giant-Shimano team for Milano-Torino
Team Giant-Shimano lines-up for the first of two Italian races this week, at Milano-Torino on Wednesday.
A young team heads to the one-day race, including 22-year-old Lawson Craddock (USA), 21-year-old Daan Olivier and also 20-year-old stagiaire Steven Lammertink (NED).
The profile of the race is relatively steady and flat until the final 25km where two sharp climbs will effectively decide the outcome.
“We will head into this race with an open plan and the guys will have their chance to take their opportunities,” said coach Addy Engels (NED).
“Races like this at the end of the season are hard to predict in terms of form, but the final of this race definitely suits the specialists with the double climb to finish. We will see how some of the guys are going on the day. It will be a good chance to test themselves for those riders still feeling good at this point of the season.”
