Line-up for the Giro d'Italia 2024

BORA-hansgrohe Team (Italy) - Press Release: Line-up for the Giro d'Italia 2024.

On the road from Turin to Rome, the search for the successor to Jai Hindley and Primož Roglič will get underway. Dani Martínez will be the GC leader for BORA - hansgrohe, fighting for a top result. Three years ago, he already achieved it when he placed 5th overall. 

Enrico Gasparotto, Sports Director for BORA - hansgrohe at the Giro d'Italia: 

"We want to achieve a top 5 in the GC with Dani. He performed very well at the start of the season and apart from the crash at Strade Bianche, his build-up to the Giro has been solid. He trained very well in Colombia, and we are optimistic that he will be in the mix for a good place in the GC."

Dani & Danny – a two-pronged Giro strategy:

It’s not only the mountain stages that are in focus, with BORA - hansgrohe heading to the Giro d'Italia with another goal. Danny van Poppel will be targeting the sprint stages. On paper, there are up to eight opportunities this year.

Enrico Gasparotto: "We see many sprint options this year - some are not easy with a climb in the finale. That's one of Danny's strengths. He's in good shape and with Ryan as a lead-out, we're in a very good position for these stages."

Versatility as the backbone of the team:

This year's Giro d'Italia is a special edition that opens new options for stage hunters. This calls for riders with versatile skills to take advantage of these opportunities to win a stage.

Enrico Gasparotto: "We are counting on Dani and Danny as our leaders and many versatile stage hunters as a backup. It's not unrealistic that the race will be open for breakaways in the second and third weeks. But these stages are mountainous and that's why we're relying on riders who can climb and get results."

Giovanni Aleotti is returning to his home Grand Tour for the fourth consecutive year with BORA - hansgrohe. It's the third Corsa Rosa for Patrick Gamper, and after 2018, Max Schachmann is set to make his Giro comeback. Back then he took a stage win in Italy. In addition, an experienced pro and a youngster celebrate their premiere at the Giro d'Italia: Jonas Koch can put his experience to good use on any terrain – Florian Lipowitz will ride his first Grand Tour ever and he will be a great support on the climbs. 

BORA - hansgrohe x Giro d'Italia 2024: Giovanni Aleotti, Patrick Gamper, Jonas Koch, Florian Lipowitz, Dani Martínez, Ryan Mullen, Max Schachmann, Danny van Poppel.
