Van Aert confirms his presence, Pogacar hopes
Confirmations have arrived from Colombia for Wout Van Aert: the Belgian will participate in the next Giro d'Italia , the greatest interest will be whether the Jumbo rider will be able to compete for the general classification or whether he will aim for stage successes.
Giulio Ciccone will in all probability be the Italian number one and captain of Lidl-Trek.
Ineos Grenadiers could focus on double captaincy with G.Thomas (called for revenge after 2nd place in 2023) and Arensman , 6th in the last edition.
The Frenchman Gaudu should be at the start of his first Corsa Rosa with the aim of top 5 in the general classification.
Joao Almeida will try to aim for victory also thanks to the many km time trials that are favorable to him.
Bora will field 99% of the very young Uijtdebroeks , who will perhaps be joined by a more experienced rider like Hindley .
The presence of Simon Yates is possible but he will still have to decide which grand tour to aim for.
Finally, the greatest hope concerns the possible participation of the number one in world cycling: Tadej Pogacar . However, the Slovenian has not yet defined his program for the new season with certainty.
