Giro d’Italia releases start list for next month’s race

Number 1 awarded to Stefano Garzelli, with special 150 assigned to Italian champion Giovanni Visconti

ivan bassoGiro d’Italia organiser RCS Sport has announced the completed start list for next month’s race, with a total of 207 riders from 23 teams. The usual maximum limit for a peloton size is 200 but, with Italy celebrating its 150th anniversary this year the International Cycling Union (UCI) has granted special dispensation for a slightly higher number.

All eighteen first division ProTeams are included, as well as five second tier Professional Continental teams.

In the absence of last year’s winner Ivan Basso, who is focusing his season on an attempt to win the Tour de France, the honour of wearing dossard number 1 has been given to Stefano Garzelli (Acqua & Sapone). The 37-year-old, who won the race in 2000, will likely be riding his final Giro d’Italia but, as he won the mountain time trial to the Plan de Corones in last year’s race, he will likely still be competitive.

To celebrate the country’s 150th anniversary a special number has been created for Italian champion Giovanni Visconti (Farnese Vini-Neri Sottoli) to pin to his tricolore jersey. Usually team numbers are those that end in 1-9, eschewing the ‘0’ numbers, but as it is such a special year for Italy, the 28-year-old will wear the number ‘150’ in the race.

Other numbers to look out for in the race will be 61, worn by 2009 winner Denis Menchov (Geox-TMC), 71, worn by Manx Missile Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad), 111, worn by last year’s third place and Vuelta a España winner Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Cannondale), with 2008 winner, and arguably the race favourite, Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank-SunGard) will wear 181.

The Race will start on May 7th in Torino (Turin), the country’s first ever capital, with a 21.5km team time trial, and finish in Milano (Milan) three weeks later with a 32.8km individual race against the clock.
