Megan Guarnier is set to be Boels-Dolmans' leader at the Giro Rosa. The rider already knows what is like to win the race as she took the overall victory in 2016.

Guarnier will attempt to repeat her victory of 2016 and she has shown her good shape by winning the Tour of Yorkshire and finishing second at the road race of the US National Championships.

"This edition of the Giro Rosa will be exceptionally hard with two mountaintop finishes and an uphill time trial," said the rider. "We have a very strong team and almost all riders have experience with racing the Giro Rosa. With the diversity of the stages, there will be opportunities for the entire team during these ten days.

"This is one of my favourite races on the calendar and I love racing in Italy. The Giro Rosa is dynamic and very challenging and we race in a beautiful country. I look forward to starting racing on Friday in Verbania."

Boels-Dolmans' roster for the Giro Rosa (6th to 15th of July):

Megan Guarnier
Karol-Ann Canuel
Chantal Blaak
Amy Pieters
Christine Majerus
Anna Plichta
Skylar Schneider
