CCC Team is returning to competition at the Spanish Vuelta a Burgos, and Matteo Trentin will be leading the roster in the five-day race.

After several months of forced rest due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is time to return to competition and CCC will do it in Spain. This race will be one of the first stage-races in the restart of the calendar and will be held between the 28th of July and the first of August.

"I think everyone is really looking forward to being on the start line and doing what we all love to do," explained Sports Director Gabriele Missaglia. "Vuelta a Burgos is a great opportunity for us to get back into the swing of things and to race hard after the extended break. Trentin will be our leader in Spain and I think he will be coming to Vuelta a Burgos in good shape, ready to race for stage wins on this parcours after a strong final block of training leading into it. We will have a good group of riders around him in the opening stages with Patrick Bevin, Víctor de la Parte, Kamil Gradek, Kamil Ma?ecki, Szymon Sajnok, and Attila Valter.

"I think Bevin can also look to try to achieve a good result over the five-stage race with de la Parte and Valter well-prepared for when we reach the mountains where the standard of the field will be very high. It has been a very strange season so far but, as a team, I am sure we are ready to restart the season on a positive note. Finally, while we are more than happy to be back racing, we know that it is still a sensitive time, and we will maintain the highest standards of hygiene and adhere to our team medical protocol and that of the race organizers and host country."

Trentin is looking forward to returning to racing, his last competition was Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne on March 1. "I am happy to be back racing and to be lining up at Vuelta a Burgos next week," the Italian said. "It will be a good opportunity to be back in the mix again after this long period without races. My training during this time has gone smoothly, so I am feeling good and I think my form is in a good place to try to go for a stage win.

"There is a good combination of everything at Vuelta a Burgos with three sprints and two mountains. In terms of preparation for the rest of the season, this race will be a key first step but it will also be important for me to be racing in the hot temperatures of Spain to get used to the same kind of heat that we will experience at Milano - San Remo, where I join the Classics squad."
