Tom Pidock will miss Liège-Bastogne-Liège as he is still feeling the effects of his latest crash in La Fleche Wallone.  Ineos Grenadiers said that the 21-year-old would be ‘resting up’ instead and  preparing for his first MTB race of the year in Switzerland next weekend. From Ineos-Granadier.com

Latest from Giro:

– In Groupama, Reichenbach will have for the first time a chance as captain.
Vansevenant is currently the reserve of the Deceuninck selection for the Giro, and if Cattaneo does not find a good condition, the young Belgian would replace him. Alternatively, Vansevenant’s debut in a grand tour will take place at the Vuelta later this year.
-In Israel, Ben Hermans should be replacing Hagen.
Bouchard and Prodhomme are also added in the pre-selection for the Giro in the AG2R, the type of roster will change little in any case: Vendrame for the sprints, Gallopin for the stages and Champoussin for the classification.
-For Bahrain, Colbrelli will not be in the Giro but in the Tour.
– Apparently, Bettiol may actually be to the race start after 5 years. But as we know, very little news leaked in EF until a few days before the start.

Italy remains with its three mysteries: Diego Ulissi, Vincenzo Nibali, Giovanni Visconti. Will we see them at the start in two weeks in Turin?

Vincenzo Nibali announced from an Instagram story that is now back on his bike. The images show the Italian facing the tough finish (gradient 10%) on the 2291 metres of Passo del Foscagno.
