Mitchelton-Scott have named their lineup for the upcoming Giro d'Italia, with Tirreno-Adriatico champion Simon Yates leading the squad as he looks to add to his 13 days spent in the pink jersey at the 2018 edition of the race.

Yates finished eighth at last year's Giro before going on to win two stages at the Tour de Francee, while the year before he won three stages and spent stages 6 to 18 in the maglia rosa before finishing 21st in Rome.
