‘You’re going to see a lot of green argyle jerseys up the road.’

    CyclingNews had spoke with Davide Formolo, Mike Woods and Hugh Carthy on the day before the start of the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia. They talked team tactics in the light of our recent press release that stated Cannondale-Drapac would line up for the first grand tour of the season without plans to ride in the service of a single leader.

    It would be wrong to think that Cannondale-Drapac is riding the 100th Giro d’Italia without a designated team leader; in truth they have nine leaders, with each of the nine riders alternating their roles and goals depending on the terrain of the 21 stages. They are nine mavericks, nine mercenaries, nine talented riders who are determined to leave their mark out on the road during the next three weeks.
