Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at 7:23 PM
Astana has its selection for the Giro d’Italia on paper. The Kazakh formation is fully committed to a good classification. Jakob Fuglsang will start the Italian round as the leader, but the team also counts on the very promising Aleksandr Vlasov.
Fuglsang has opted for the Tour of Italy this year. The 35-year-old Dane hopes to compete for the overall victory in a grand tour next month and will be able to count on the support of Vlasov and Miguel Ángel López in the mountains. Fuglsang is well on track in 2020, he already won the Ruta del Sol and the Tour of Lombardy.
At the World Cup in Imola, Italy, the experienced Fuglsang showed that he was ready for the Giro. The climber finished fifth in the road race. His younger teammate Vlasov is one dark horse for the Giro classification. This year he already won the Mont Ventoux Challenge and the Giro dell’Emilia, came third in the Tour of Lombardy and quite recently fifth in Tirreno-Adriatico.
López, who was still played as the classification leader in the Tour de France, will ride in the Giro in the service of Fuglsang and Vlasov. Climber Óscar Rodríguez, the fast Fabio Felline, speed rider Manuele Boaro and the Kazakhs Vadim Pronskiy and Yuriy Natarov have also made the Giro selection.
