Complete official start list for the 2015 Giro d'Italia (May 9-31), with race numbers

The official start list for the 2015 Giro d’Italia (May 9-31) has been released. Twenty two teams will take part in the 2015 Giro, including the 17 top-level WorldTour teams.

Each squad fields nine riders apiece, bringing the total start list to 198 riders.

The number 108 is not allocated to a rider in tribute to Wouter Weylandt, the Belgian rider who lost his life after crashing during the 2011 Giro. His number, 108, has been permanently retired from the race.

Ag2r rider Domenico Pozzovivo has been allocated the number one in the absence of 2014 winner Nairo Quintana (Movistar), who skips this year’s race to concentrate on the Tour de France.

For the first time in 16 years, no British rider will take part in the Giro d’Italia.

Start list may be subject to change.
