Cylance roster for Giro Rosa

by CyclingTips

The Cylance Pro Cycling team announced its roster for the upcoming Giro Rosa, one of the biggest races on the UCI Women’s WorldTour calendar.

Rossella Ratto won the Winston-Salem Cycling Classic back in May and will be a threat in breakaways.

Doris Schweizer comes into the race on good form as both the time trial and road race champion of Switzerland, winning both just last week. Krista Doebel-Hickok finished ninth at the Philadelphia International Classic.

The 10-day stage race runs July 1-10 in the northern provinces of Italy, beginning with a 2km prologue and featuring a tough fifth stage passing over the challenging Mortirolo and a mountain finish to Tirano.
