Team Sunweb have revealed their Giro d'Italia line-up, unveiling the seven riders who will line up alongside Tom Dumoulin as he tries to successfully defend his pink jersey.

Dumoulin is joined by only two of the riders who supported him to success in last year's Giro, with key mountain domestiques Chad Haga and Laurens Ten Dam making the cut, but there is no space for Dumoulin's right-hand man from 2017 Simon Geschke as he continues to find form after suffering a broken collarbone earlier in the season.
