Il Lombardia on Saturday, August 15, is the third single-day race of the top-flight UCI WorldTour calendar since resumption of racing after the Coronavirus break and is one of the five Monuments of cycling.

Given the race's status, it is no surprise to see some of the biggest names in professional cycling lining up in Bergamo for 231km of tough hills.

Defending champion Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) is down to try and retain his titleand he is joined by two of his team's Giro d'Italia leaders, in the shape of Vincenzo Nibali and Giulio Ciccone.

Fresh from another stage race success at the Tour of Poland, superstar 20-year-old, Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), is set to take the start line with a strong team of young talent to support him as he continues his preparation for the Giro.

Other Giro hopefuls that will be keen to add this Italian monument to their palmares are Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), Richard Carapaz (Team Ineos) and Fabio Aru (UAE Team Emirates).

More big names down to ride are Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) who is riding his second monument after a disappointing Milan - San Remo, Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Michael Woods (EF Pro Cycling)

Here is the start list of all riders taking part in the second monument of this rejigged 2020 season.
