The organization of Volta a Itália on bicycle announced today that it has addressed the three invitations to teams outside the WorldTour level to the Italian Bardiani-CSF, Eolo-Kometa and Vini Zabù, who will be in the match on May 8th.
To run the Giro, Alpecin-Fenix, the fourth team in the ProTour category, was also automatically invited, since he led the ranking of these teams in 2020, winning an invitation.
If Bardiani and Vini Zabù are a more frequent presence, this will be the debut in big laps of Eolo-Kometa, managed by former cyclists Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, who have the Portuguese Daniel Viegas in the ranks.
The other three formations benefited from a ‘wild card’ by the organizers of the ‘corsa rosa’, thus leaving out Arkéa Samsic, from Colombian Nairo Quintana (winner in 2014), and Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec, a regular participant in the proof.
Automatically enrolled in the race, which runs from May 8 to 30, are the WorldTour teams, including INEOS, from the winner of 2020, the British Tao Geoghegan Hart, Deceuninck-QuickStep, who had João Almeida as leader for 15 days and in the final fourth place, and Education-First-Nippo, from last year’s mountain winner, Portuguese Ruben Guerreiro.
