Winner Stage 8 (2012)

“He will be our leader for this Giro. After having raced it ten times, he knows the race perfectly well and can recognize the traps. Domenico excels when the course is difficult, and his recent performances (3rd of the Tour of the Alps – 12th of Liège-Bastogne-Liège) lead us to predict great things for him during the three weeks of racing. After crashing out in 2015 and drudging through a difficult Giro last year, we hope to see him once again in the top-10in the overall standings.”

Giro : 10th participation; 11th (2016-2011)

“The perfect example of an ideal teammate ! Hubert is an experienced rider who knows the Giro very well. He is able to ride with the team leaders deep into each mountain stage, and he is a very valuable member of the team especially in a three week race. Last year, he finished in 11th place overall for the second time in his career. He is coming into shape at exactly the right time, and he will be ready for the rendez-vous.”

Giro : 7th participation

“Always a very good teammate, always switched-on for his national tour, he is able to get over the middle mountains and still have enough speed to go for a victory in case a small group arrives at the finish together. Nineteenth last year, he can also work as our third man for the team classification. His victory at the Tour of the Alps (stage 4) should work as a trigger for his confidence, and he will be keen to tackle the Giro where he nearly already won a stage last year (2nd in stage 8).”
