Analysing Ineos Grenadiers’ Giro d’Italia long list

With the Giro d’Italia less than a month away, teams are frantically putting together their eight-rider rosters and scanning their rosters for those on form and those on the slide. At Ineos Grenadiers the plan looks relatively stable with former Tour de France winner Egan Bernal targeting the first maglia rosa of his career as the team look to win their second straight crown. 

The allocation of the other seven spots to support the Colombian are a little less clear, with a glut of potential climbers and rouleurs in the mix. Cyclingnews has gathered a well-sourced list of 14 riders in contention for the team’s starting lineup and analyzed each rider’s chances of making the cut.
