Bardiani-CSF is ready to face the 102nd edition of Giro d’Italia. After the last races, Tour of the Alps and Giro dell'Appennino, the #GreenTeam management has made its choices and outlined the line-up that will take part in the Corsa Rosa, scheduled from May 11 (start from Bologna) to June 2 (grand finale in Verona)
The eight riders selected are Enrico Barbin, Giovanni Carboni, Luca Covili, Mirco Maestri, Umberto Orsini, Lorenzo Rota, Manuel Senni and Paolo Simion. The reserves, ready to take over in case of forfeiture, are (in alphabetical order) Vincenzo Albanese, Daniel Savini and Alessandro Tonelli. Team directors Roberto Reverberi and Stefano Zanatta are the technical guides, assisted by Mirko Rossato.
Bardiani-CSF's line-up for the Giro has an average age of 25 and includes three absolute rookies: Giovanni Carboni, Umberto Orsini and neo-professional rider Luca Covili. The latter, born in 1997, is the youngest rider of the team with his 22 years. Enrico Barbin, the #GreenTeam veteran, is instead the most experienced rider both in terms of age (29 years old in March) and number of participations at Giro d'Italia (2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018).
