Ineos Grenadiers and Groupama-FDJ are among the 10 WorldTour teams confirmed to compete at this year’s Tour of the Alps, April 18-22, including on their preliminary rosters previous winners of the race, 2019 champion Pavel Sivakov and 2018 champion Thibaut Pinot, respectively. 

A total of 19 teams, eight of them ProTeams, were announced on Thursday at a presentation event held in Lienz, which will host the final of the five-day ProSeries stage race. Absent from the list was the Australian WorldTeam BikeExchange-Jayco, which was led last year by GC winner Simon Yates, although organisers GS Alto Garda said a 20th team could still be included at a later date.
