The Giro d’Italia may have shifted from May to October and back to May again in 2021,but for former US National Road Champion Larry Warbasse (AG2R-Citroen) that makes little difference: he’s still going to be gunning for a stage win in the Corsa Rosa.

17th overall and fifth on one stage of the Giro d’Italia last year, the 30-year-old is currently pounding the roads of the Itzulia Basque Country, where the high paced racing this year will, as he told Cyclingnews, “certainly help me to get good form for Italy.”
