Italian race organiser RCS Sport has announced the wild cards for the Giro d'Italia and three of its other races.

Androni Giocattoli - Sidermec, Bardiani CSF and Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia will represent the home country during the 101st Giro d'Italia, and are joined by Israel Cycling Academy which will get a chance show itself to its home fans during the first few stages in Israel.

As such, a team like Nippo Vini Fantini Europa Ovini misses out on Giro participation, although it has been invited to Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo.

Israel Cycling Academy meanwhile, called their selection a "historic moment and a great honour," adding that it has earned its right to appear in the race.
