But Landa insists he’s yet to reach top form ahead of his tilt at the Giro d’Italia, so results are less important than improving his fitness.
“Trentino has been a special race for me over the last few years,” he told the Team Sky website. “I’m still not in my very peak condition, but I’m close to that, so I’ll try and finish as high on the standings as I can and keep building my relations with my team-mates.”
Landa is joined in the Giro del Trentino by Ian Boswell, Christian Knees, Philip Deignan, David Lopez, Gianni Moscon, Alex Peters and Xabier Zandio.
