Giro Rosa Line Up Revealed
The Italian Grand Tour opens with a team time trial
The Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile gets underway from 30 June – 9 July 2017. The high profile event is the only Grand Tour in women’s cycling.
The 10-day race will start in Aquileia with an 11.5km team time trial.
The team will include Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio who has finished in the top 10 on three occasions. Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, Lisa Klein, Lotta Lepistö and Nicole Hanselmann all head to Italy fresh from winning national titles.
“This is a very important event for us,” team manager, Thomas Campana said. “We have some partners based in Italy who are very strong brands in the industry and we want to represent them well. It’s a high profile event on the calendar and one that is important for women’s cycling and we believe we have shown the race respect by putting together a very strong group. We will take each stage as it comes and see what we get out of the race but there is no pressure on the riders as we go into the race off the back of a very successful season with 15 victories so far.”
