Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx) aims to continue an exceptional pre-retirement year zeroing in winning a fourth overall title at the Giro d'Italia Donne from July 2-11 before travelling to Tokyo to defend her gold medal at the Olympic Games on July 25.

“I’m really focused for this year’s edition of the Giro d’Italia Donne and looking forward to work together as a team through those 10 stages. The combination of this stage schedule needs to make us work as a team, of which I don’t have any doubts," Van der Breggen said.
