Team Sky has announced that young Manxman Pete Kennaugh will replace Serge Pauwels in their Giro d'Italia squad for the race, which starts on Saturday.

"I was planning to do the Tour of Romandie last week but they took me out initially and told me I wasn't riding until the Tour of Picardy [on Friday 13 May]," Kennaugh told Cycling Weekly. "I found out two weeks ago. I'm mega excited and quite nervous too."
