Giro d’Italia 2017: start list

Three Brits will line-up for the 100th edition of the Giro d'Italia

Three British riders will line-up for the 2017 Giro d’Italia, with Geraint Thomas leading the charge for Team Sky.

Thomas, who has victories to his name at the Tour of the Alps and Tirreno-Adriatico in 2017, will sprearhead a Grand Tour team for the first time, albeit assuming joint leadership with Sky team-mate Mikel Landa.

Meanwhile, while Adam Yates (Orica-Scott) will look to replicate his form at the 2016 Tour de France, where the 24-year-old finished fourth. The Giro will be Yates’ fourth Grand Tour, though it will be the Bury-born climber’s first participation in the Italian Grand Tour, having completed the Tour twice (2016 & 2015) and Vuelta a Espana once (2014).

Hugh Carthy will also make his Giro debut, riding for Cannondale-Drapac having signed on as a pro at the start of the season. Carthy already has one Grand Tour under his belt, having ridden last year’s Vuelta with the US-based team as a stagiaire.

In total, one hundred and ninety seven riders from 22 teams will start the race in Sardinia on Friday (May 4). Astana will line-up with eight riders, instead of the usual nine, having left one space free following the tragic death of 2011 Giro winner Michele Scarponi, who was due to lead the team at the race.

Nairo Quintana (Movistar) will start the Giro as favourite, bidding to add a second title to his palmares having won the race in 2014, while Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida), who will ride a custom bike made from gold, will seek to become only the eighth rider to win the Giro three times.
