On the race front: Milano-Torino and the Tre Valli Varesine with reports and video. Other cycling news we preview Il Lombardia, some Worlds news and a load more contract up-dates. A full to bursting EUROTRASH sack to empty this Thursday.
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.
On Tuesday 27th the blue-fuchsia-green team will participate in the Tre Valli Varesine (192,9 km, from Saronno to Varese), which will be followed on Wednesday 28th by Milano-Torino (start from San Giuliano Milanese and arrival on Colle di Superga, 186 km) and on Thursday 29th by Gran Piemonte (207 km from Diano d'Alba to Agliè).
