Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo) has picked out his main rivals for the Giro d’Italia with the Italian returning to racing next week at Strade Bianche. The veteran Grand Tour leader has built his season around the Giro d'Italia as he looks to improve on last year’s second-place overall. The 35-year-old recently returned from an altitude training camp and highlighted the main threats in challenging for the maglia rosa.

The Italian also made special of race debutant Remco Evenepoel, the 20-year-old Deceuninck-Quick Step who has taken the sport by storm since his junior days and his transition into the WorldTour at the start of 2019.
