Giro d'Italia debut part of bigger picture for Haas

Bouncing back from a difficult start to the year at the Tour Down Under, Nathan Haas (Garmin Sharp) can take solace from his performance at the Tour de Langkawi, riding aggressively until the final kilometres in an attempt to leapfrog from sixth to fifth overall. The Australian was unable to improve his position but demonstrated huge inroads from his neo-pro season, attributing the Australian National Road Series for his "never give up" attitude. It's this unsparing approach he'll no doubt utilise as he plans his maiden ride at the Giro d'Italia this year.
