Matej Mohorič starts his season as one of the leading cards for Bahrain Victorious to play across three Italian one-day races this week, including Saturday’s Strade Bianche where he finished in the top 20 last year despite multiple flats. 

When Mohorič  opens up the racing at Trofeo Laigueglia (1.Pro) on Wednesday he will be targeting a likely small group sprint, along with teammates Pello Bilbao and Mikel Landa, before then taking on the white gravel roads of Strade Bianche, where he will also share leadership with Spanish teammate Bilbao.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
