The Giro d’Italia team presentation took place last night, ahead of what promises to be an action packed three weeks in the first Grand Tour of the season.
As well as the mouth watering general classification battle between Remco Evenepoel and Primož Roglič, a huge number of stars from the men’s WorldTour are set to take part including a rather formidable looking Ineos Grenadiers lineup including Geraint Thomas and Tao Geoghegan Hart.
If the Giro doesn’t take your fancy, then we’ve plenty of other content to catch your eye this week. Alex Dowsett has been lacing up his running shoes and critically acclaimed singer songwriters have been pulling their bikes out of the garage to ride down to the local awards ceremony.
Meanwhile, up in Bonny Scotland, a certain Belgian superstar has been out and about on two wheels, stealing KOMs ahead of the World Championships in August.
