Team Saxo Bank has announced its line-up for the Giro d'Italia 2012.
big goal for the season. Personally I was really looking forward to seeing what he could achieve in the Giro. I believe he could have surprised quite a few people," Riis commented.
"Without a pre-race favorite or a GC contender in our Giro lineup we will have an opportunistic approach to this year's first Grand Tour. We have tried to put together a group of riders who can help and support Juan Jose Haedo in the sprints, but also ride aggressively on their own in intermediate stages. Our goal will be to win a stage, and I have no doubt that these guys will make an impact on the race already in the race's very first stages in Denmark," Riis concluded.
Team Saxo Bank Roster for the 2012 Giro d'Italia:
Juan Jose Haedo (Argentina), Volodymir Gustov (Ukraine), Matteo Tosatto (Italy), Luke Roberts (Australia), Mads Christensen (Denmark), Lucas Sebastian Haedo (Argentina), Jonas Aaen (Denmark), Anders Lund (Denmark), and Manuele Boaro (Italy).
