With Carlos Sastre (Cervélo TestTeam), Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team), Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) and Ivan Basso (Liquigas-Doimo) as the big favourites, 198 riders will start in this 93rd Tour of Italy.

    The participating riders for the different teams of the Giro d'Italia 2010

    BMC Racing Team

    BMC Racing TeamSince Giro d'Italia 2009 winner, Denis Menchov (Rabobank) does not participate this year, the World Champion, Cadel Evans, of the American team with the Swiss sponsor gets the number 1.
    The team's goal is to make Evans the first Australian rider to win the Giro d'Italia and team manager John Lelangue said about his team: It may not be a team of big names, but we know they can do the job for us, so that's most important. Our only objective for this race is riding for Cadel for the general classification.

    AG2R La Mondiale

    Hubert DupontThe AG2R La Mondiale team would usually have had Tadej Valjavec as its leader in the Giro but the Slovenian rider is suspected of using doping based on the values of his biological passport and the team has thus decided to no longer let him participate in races and suspend him for the time being. According to Valjavec the fluctuating blood values can be explained because of an illness for which he received a treatment; according to him his team has forgotton to deliver the medical certificate for this threatment to the UCI. Hubert Dupont replaces Valjavec.

    Cervélo TestTeam

    Carlos SastreIn the team of the Canadian bike manufacturer the Tour de France 2008 winner, Carlos Sastre, would like to get a good place in the general classification. Will he be able to improve his 3rd place in the Giro d'Italia 2009 where he won 2 stages?

    Despite the only 8 race days he has done so far, he seems to be ready for it: I want to win the Giro, that is my first goal. The last 10 days are very hard, I am a climber and there are less kilometers of time trial, so all of this works in my favor," Sastre said Thursday after arriving in Amsterdam. "I have a very strong team here to support me. Everyone is very motivated, it's the first big tour of the season, and we have a new sponsor, so there are a lot good things for us in this Giro.

    (concerning the new sponsor: that's Tata Consultancy Services which name will be shown on the riders' chests, just below the Cervélo logo)

    In the team for the Tour of Italy, Damien Monier replaces Tristan Valentin who was initially planned to participate but couldn't make it because of a bronchitis.

    Lampre-Farnese Vini

    Damiano CunegoThe Italian prince, Damiano Cunego, finds in the Lampre-Farnese Vini team for this Tour of Italy Gilberto Simoni as a co-leader, while they didn't really manage to work out a similar situation in 2004 (Saeco) and 2005 (Lampre).
    For the sprints the Italian team counts on Alessandro Petacchi.

    As usual the Lampre-Farnese Vini team has published some statistics about its team: the oldest rider is Gilberto Simoni with his 38 years and he's also the rider with the highest number of participations in the Giro d'Italia: 13.

    The team represents three countries: Italy, Germany and Switzerland.
    4 riders in the team have already won a stage in the Giro: Damiano Cunego, Alessandro Petacchi, Gilberto Simoni and Danilo Hondo.

    Fabio SabatiniSince Franco Pellizotti is one of the other riders who can not participate in the Giro because of the variations detected in his blood levels in his biological passport, Ivan Basso and Vincenzo Nibali are the two leaders for the Liquigas-Doimo team. Nibali has been asked as a last minute replacement for the Giro d'Italia 2010.

    Ivan Basso said about the Giro: Winning the Tour of Italy is my dream this year. I take this new challenge with confidence and come to the start as a relaxed man. There are many candidates for the final win and it will thus not be easy to bring the pink jersey to Verona: whatever happens, I'll go for it for 110%.
    Vincenzo Nibali said: The Giro d'Italia is always a special occasion. I would like to achieve a good result, depending on my condition; I'll live the race on a day by day base to see how far I can come. Concerning the individual time trial in Amsterdam he simply said: Short and technical, that's how I love them.

    Omega Pharma-Lotto

    Daniel MorenoMarc Sergeant, manager of the Belgian team presented his team for the Giro with the following comments: The selection is a mix of young talent, completed with experience and must be able to show something nice.

    Adam Blythe, Michiel Elijzen and Jan Bakelants will do their very first Giro d'Italia: Bakelants is a former winner of the Tour de l'Avenir and will thus start a stage race like this one with some ambitions, Blythe would like to seize the occasions at bunch sprints and Elijzen wants to be good in the individual time trial in Amsterdam.

    Francis de Greef targets a stage win in one of the mountain stages, just like Matthew Lloyd, while Daniel Moreno would like to get a good position in the general classification.
