Mitchelton-Scott will arrive at the start of the Gran Piemonte on Wednesday with options for the Italian one-day race, including climbers Lucas Hamilton and Tsgabu Grmay, and New Zealand's Dion Smith, who finished sixth at Milan-San Remo on Saturday, three days after also finishing ninth at Milano-Torino.

The 187-kilometre route from Santo Stefano Belbo to Barolo is a very hilly – but not mountainous – affair, and acts as a 'warm-up' event for Saturday's Il Lombardia, with a large proportion of Mitchelton's Gran Piemonte squad likely to feature in the rescheduled season's second Monument this weekend.
