Elisa Longo Borghini is set to lead Trek-Segafredo in the Giro Rosa. The Italian rider will start for the eighth time in the Italian grand tour.

The 30th edition of the Italian race will start on the fifth of July in Cassano Spinola and finish on Sunday, the 14th of July in Udine. Longo-Borghini will start in the race in a season in which she has won the Spanish Emakumeen XXXII.Bira after taking a victory in its fourth stage.

"It's a very hard Giro Rosa this year, but I think we have a strong team," said Longo Borghini. "My preparation so far has been okay and I think it's time to race!"

"Every stage at this Giro Rosa is hard!" added sports director Giorgia Bronzini. "We obviously have Elisa as a GC-rider, and we will try to support her to be up there in GC as much as we can but we will also try to win stages. Everybody on the team has shown great form, so I am really looking forward to starting the race this Friday!"

Trek-Segafredo's roster for the Giro Rosa (5th to 14th of July):

Audrey Cordon-Ragot
Elisa Longo Borghini
Anna Plichta
Tayler Wiles
Ruth Winder
Trixi Worrack
