Nibali, Carapaz and Fuglsang – all among the favourites for this year's Giro d'Italia – will be joined on the start line by Fabio Aru (UAE Team Emirates), 2017 winner Giovanni Visconti (Vini Zabu-KTM) and Ben King (NTT Pro Cycling).
Ineos bring a strong squad along with Carapaz, as Eddie Dunbar, Iván Sosa, Tao Geoghegan Hart and Gianni Moscon all compete. Likewise, Trek-Segafredo will have Giulio Ciccone and Gianluca Brambilla at the start. Young talent João Almeida leads Deceuninck-QuickStep.
At the women's race, past winners Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo), Tatiano Guderzo (Alé-BTC-Cipollini) and Rasa Leleivyte (Aromitalia Vaiano) will join Vollering, Deignan and Niewiadoma, as will Sofia Bertizzolo (CCC-Liv) and Elisa Balsamo (Valcar-Travel & Service).
The race finishes atop the San Luca climb in Bologna, although the women's course is a flat run to the hill, while the men will tackle a far hillier race, which takes in five ascents of San Luca.
