Landa: "I'm going to the Giro to win"

The Alava rider is optimistic for the Italian round, one of his main goals of the season. At the very least, their aspirations point to the podium.


Mikel Landa goes this year step by step and with good lyrics. The rider from Alava will attend the Giro d'Italia for the first time, one of his great goals for the year, as the absolute leader of a formation, in this case that of the Bahrain-Victorious. He was not bad last year in that role, as he finished the Tour de France in fourth position. But Landa aspires to higher levels ... 444 444

"The general is what I want. The team has made sure that I have a strong block around me and my idea is to win the race. Or at least to get on the podium," explained an ambitious Landa in a statement to the Cyclingnews portal . In addition, he added that despite not being in his best form in an Itzulia where he closes the top-10 overall, the preparation for the Corsa Rosa is on the right track: "I am definitely competing much better than when I started and I feel very motivated racing here at home. I'm going to take any opportunity there is. But I'm aiming for the Giro d'Italia so I'm not in the best condition yet. "

For the Italian round, Landa could count on a powerful bloc of gregarious men led by his right-hand man in the three-week rounds, Pello Bilbao, as well as experienced men like Damiano Caruso and two Giro stage winners like Jan Tratnik and Matej Mohoric . In the absence of the conclusion of the Itzulia, it should be noted that Landa has not dropped from the top-10 in any race, with the prestigious third place in Tirreno-Adriatico, so his set-up is being, to say the least, exciting.
