Giro d'Italia - Mark Cavendish, Alejandro Valverde, Vincenzo Nibali: The Giro 2022 squads

It is one of the most anticipated moments of the cycling season. Friday, the 105th Tour of Italy starts on the side of Hungary, in Budapest, to end on Sunday, May 29 on the side of Verona. All the stages will obviously be to follow on Eurosport, with several headliners who will fight for the succession of Egan Bernal. Richard Carapaz (Ineos-Grenadiers) and Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange – Jayco) will be expected in particular. Vincenzo Nibali (Qazaqstan Team), he always manages to raise his level at home, while Romain Bardet (Team DSM) and Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) will try to defend the French colors.

Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step) will also be making a comeback, nine years after his last participation. And Alejandro Valverde, for his part, will share the responsibilities within the Movistar team with the Colombian climber Ivan Sosa. In 2016, during his one and only appearance, he won a stage and took third place overall.

First for Martin

On the French side, Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) will discover the Giro. Ranked eighth in the Tour and ninth in the Vuelta in 2021, the Norman will chain Tour of Italy-Tour de France. “The objective will be to achieve a good or even a very good result in the general classification. I hope to do better than my best performance in a Grand Tour (8th). I have good memories in Italy for having won a stage in the Tour of Sicily and another in the Tour of Tuscany. It’s a race that suits the climbers very well and should suit me too”.

For its part, the Bahrain team has set itself the goal of final victory, one year after Damiano Caruso’s second place. In the absence of the Italian, focused on the Tour de France, the formation will align Mikel Landa (3rd in 2015) who had abandoned prematurely last year, from the 5th stage.
