Ineos goes all out in Strade

The British team is bidding for victory at the Italian sterrato with a luxurious trident that completes the promising Pidcock.


The Ineos ensemble will not exactly go for a walk to the next Strade Bianche (March 6). This is reflected in their call for the race, which highlights a trident with which they will try to assault the victory, surprising the great specialists: Michal Kwiatkowski, Egan Bernal and Tom Pidcock.

The Pole will spearhead Dave Brailsford's formation, not in vain, he already conquered the Strade in 2017, ahead of Greg van Avermaet and Tim Wellens. Kwiatkowski should be the beacon that guides Bernal, since the Colombian makes his debut in a sterrato race of these characteristics. Pidcock will do the same, but his potential in one-day tests (despite being only 21 years old), is beyond doubt, as he well demonstrated last Sunday with his third place in the Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. His experience in cyclo-cross will give him an immediate adaptation to the sterrato stages, so he can be an ace up the sleeve for Ineos.

The formation of the British team for the Strade will be completed by Pavel Sivakov, Salvatore Puccio, Leonardo Basso and Owain Doull. Against all odds, Gianni Moscon, a specialist in this type of test, will not be able to start, since last Saturday he broke his wrist. Luckily, there will be no shortage of other stars and candidates for victory such as Van der Poel, Van Aert (current champion), Pogacar, Alaphilippe or Mollema.
