Mikel Landa will ride his first race of the season on Wednesday in the Trofeo Laigueglia after the Bahrain Victorious rider had to change his plans after the postponement of the Ruta del Sol.
After the Trofeo Laigueglia, Landa will take a look at some of stages of the Giro d’Italia, before taking part in the GP Industria i Artigianato on Sunday, 7 March. In April he will ride the Tour of the Basque Country.
Landa, who focuses on the Giro and the Tour de France this season, is not the only big name on the provisional start list of the Trofeo Laigueglia. Nairo Quintana, Bauke Mollema, Thibaut Pinot, Egan Bernal, Michal Kwiatkowski and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad winner Davide Ballerini are also on the provisional start list.
Giulio Ciccone showed in his first race of 2020 that his 2019 performance was not a coincidence and won the Trofeo Laigueglia by more than half a minute ahead of his closest followers Biniam Ghirmay and Diego Rosa.
