Bahrain-Merida is prepared to tackle the Tre Valli Varesine with a strong line-up that will support its two leaders.

The race is the final act of the known as 'Trittico Lombardo' series and the team will start in it with a versatile formation that can tackle every situation the competition may offer. "We will head to 'Tre Valli Varesine' with a strong team, including riders with different skills, to be ready for a race that as usual will offer so many solutions," said sports director Alberto Volpi.

This will be the 99th edition of the race and the course will be more challenging than in the past. After the long flat sector along the lakes of Varese and Comabbio, the riders will face a demanding part that is made up by five short laps and two long laps in the circuit, which includes the 'Bobbiate' ascent.

"I think this new change made to the course will reduce the opportunities for sprinters," Volpi explained. "Having that climb to face also in the finale will mean that you need strong legs to survive and sprint to win in Varese.

"Anyway, if that will be the case, we will be ready to contest it with a champion like Sonny Colbrelli, who will be highly motivated after his success at GB Beghelli. But I believe that the race will suit best riders as Dylan Teuns and Vincenzo Nibali. Both will be our leaders tomorrow."

The original roster included Andrea Garosio, but he was replaced by Spaniard Ivan Garcia Cortina.

Bahrain-Merida's line-up for the Tre Valli Varesine (October 8):

Valerio Agnoli
Damiano Caruso
Sonny Colbrelli
Iván García Cortina
Vincenzo Nibali
Mark Padun
Dylan Teuns
