Dan Martin will lead an Israel Start-Up Nation team that includes Alessandro De Marchi, Patrick Bevin and Alex Dowsett at the Giro d’Italia, which gets underway in Turin on May 8.

The Irishman returns to the Corsa Rosa for the first time since he crashed out of the race in the opening team time trial in Belfast in 2014. Buoyed by his fourth place finish at last year’s Vuelta a España, Martin is targeting the general classification in Italy.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
