"The chances are limited, but Robbie will be able to strike," said Predictor-Lotto Directeur Sportif Marc Sergeant to Sporza of team's sprinter for the upcoming Giro d'Italia.
He reckoned that the Giro will be a little bit difficult and it will not allow for many sprint finishes. "I find the Giro quite severe," he continued. "Mario Aerts will give the team experience, and, moreover, he can ride uphill.
"Wim Van Huffel rode a brilliant Giro two years ago ... Matthew Lloyd will possibly be a pleasant surprise, as will Jurgen Van den Broeck."
The Predictor-Lotto team for the Giro will be Mario Aerts, Dario Cioni, Josep Jufré, Matthew Lloyd, Nick Gates, Robbie McEwen, Wim Van Huffel, Jurgen Van den Broeck and Stefano Zanini.
