Bardiani-CSF has its team ready to face the Giro d'Italia. The Italian roster will aim to be in front as often as possible and get stage victories.

This will be the most important race of the season for the team and as such it has been getting ready for the grand tour. "The path to the Giro has been really brilliant, especially in the last races at Tour of the Alps, Giro dell’Appennino and Tour of Croatia," said Sports Director Roberto Reverberi. "We’re really satisfied with the results achieved by the guys so far and a lot of them deserved a call for the Giro.

"We’ve always had clear ideas about the type of team we need for this Giro. For us, every stage is a good chance to stand out, to attack and to catch the win. The target of the team are the stages and to hit it we’ll need the work of the entire team, besides the exploit of the single rider. Commitment and team spirit will be our watchwords."

This will be the sixth appearance of the team in the Italian grand tour and it will be starting with riders that can face every challenge. "The characteristics of the route and the riders form have been the key factors at the base of our decision," commented Sports Director Stefano Zanatta. "Every stage is tough and tricky. To be competitive, we selected a young line-up, with an average age of 25.5, but at the same time experienced.

"(Andrea) Guardini and (Paolo) Simion will look to the fast stages; (Giulio) Ciccone and (Manuel) Senni will be the key riders on the climbs; (Simone) Andreetta, (Enrico) Barbin, (Mirco) Maestri and (Alessandro) Tonelli will form the unit of attackers for the breakaways. We’re confident this team lives up to the prestige of the race. From Jerusalem to Rome, everyone has the task to honour the race and their jersey."

Simone Andreetta
