Pozzovivo aiming for Giro d'Italia podium

Domenico Pozzovivo plans to target the Giro d'Italia's podium this May as he leads his new Bahrain-Merida team. Pozzovivo finished sixth overall in last year's Giro at 3:11 down on the winner Tom Dumoulin, and cracked the top five in 2014. He might be 35, but he believes that he can still improve on that at this year's edition.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
