Giro d’Italia 2020 start list: Confirmed line-ups for the 103rd edition

Here's who will be livening up your screens this October at the 2020 Giro d'Italia

The 2020 Giro d’Italia will take place from October 3 to October 25, having been forced to move from its normal spot in May due to the coronavirus pandemic. The start will now take place in Sicily instead of its original plan of hosting the opening three stages in Hungary.

The change and subsequent crossover with the northern Classics in Belgium and France has meant a lot of riders planning to take on the Giro originally reverted back to the Tour de France, which took place in August and September.

Still, a stellar line-up of GC riders will take part, while Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) will forgo his usual aims at the Classics to take on the Giro, having agreed with organisers RCS to make his debut in the race this year.

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) will not be defending his title as he went to the Tour de France to support Egan Bernal, which did not go to plan. Ineos Grenadiers have gone for Geraint Thomas to lead the team in a route that suits his attributes.

Tifosi favourite Vincenzo Nibali will ride for his new Trek-Segafredo team with the aim of taking a third title, while his former team-mate Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) will hope to secure his first overall win at a Grand Tour.

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) will return to the Giro this year to attempt to right the wrongs of two years ago when he led the race with three stages to go.

There’s also a strong sprinting line-up for the Corsa Rosa. As well as Peter Sagan, Grand Tour stage winners Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ), Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) and Elia Viviani (Cofidis) will all be competing for the victory on the flat stages.

All line-ups for the 202o Giro d’Italia are now confirmed with race numbers.
