The Giro d’Italia team presentation took place last night, ahead of what promises to be an action packed three weeks in the first Grand Tour of the season.

As well as the mouth watering general classification battle between Remco Evenepoel and Primož Roglič, a huge number of stars from the men’s WorldTour are set to take part including a rather formidable looking Ineos Grenadiers lineup including Geraint Thomas and Tao Geoghegan Hart.
