Dario Cataldo first noticed Bradley Wiggins when he won the Giro d'Italia's opening time trial in 2010. Later in the race, they both featured in an escape that turned the classification on its head. This year the 27-year-old Italian will ride alongside Wiggins in Team Sky colours as the Briton bids for the Giro win.

"Italians have a different feeling for the race, when we are on home roads and with the tifosi near by, but for sure, Wiggins appreciates the Giro," Cataldo told Cycling Weekly before stage five of the Tour of Oman.
