EF Education First-Drapac has built a team that can tackle every terrain and fight for stage victories at the upcoming Giro d'Italia.

The roster of the American team includes some climbers, rouleurs and a sprinter that can fight for stage wins and help Mike Woods achieve a good GC position.

"The Giro is going to be another step in Mike’s career," said Sports Director Juanma Garate. "After a difficult start for him this season, I think he arrives in Israel exactly as we wanted. If he enjoys every day, if he continues to feel like he is living his dream, I believe this next month will be a really successful one."

"My big goal for this Giro is to get a stage win," added Woods. "I haven’t won a WorldTour race yet, and with 21 stages on tap, I’m hoping I can win one of them."

Sacha Modolo is the only sprinter in the team and will try hard to take a victory in one of the fast stages. "Sacha is our sprinter, and the course of the Giro adapts to his characteristics," commented Sports Director Fabrizio Guidi. "He has a lot of experience and is obviously highly motivated."

EF Education First-Drapac's complete roster for the 2018 Giro d'Italia:

Nate Brown
Hugh Carthy
Mitch Docker
Joe Dombrowski
Sacha Modolo
Tom Scully
Mike Woods
Tom Van Asbroeck
