Baby Giro teams 2018

The Giro Ciclistico d’Italia (“Baby Giro”) announced its 30-team start-list this morning, following a season-long points competition for Italian-registered teams and an invitation-based selection process for overseas teams.

There were no surprises amongst the foreign team announcement, with some having been expected since the race presentation (which included a guest appearance by Ivan Basso). 

Exactly what the “one foreign rider only” rule means for Dimension Data remains unclear – they will be required to field 6 riders in Forli on 8 June, but have only 4 Italians registered to the team.
