Elia Viviani has said that he chose to return to Ineos Grenadiers because it was the right 'project' for him, revealing that he wants to win races but also help a new generation of riders do the same.

The Italian sprinter rode for the British team for three years between 2015 and 2017, before spending two years at Deceuninck-QuickStep and the past two years at Cofidis.
