Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) has confirmed he will target Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, the yellow jersey at the Tour de France and possibly the Hour Record in 2022, naming Francesco Moser as a rouleur role model and inspiration for his numerous goals. 

Moser achieved all of those objectives during his long career spanning from 1973 to 1988. He won Paris-Roubaix three consecutive times and also added the Giro d’Italia in 1984 after he revived his career in his thirties by beating Eddy Merckx’s Hour Record on a disc wheel-equipped aero bike and with the help of new physiological methodology introduced by Professor Francesco Conconi and Dr. Michele Ferrari.
