The Giro del Trentino starts from tomorrow and MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung will be lining up for the Italian UCI 2.HC event with a strong African team. The race will be run over 4 stages, covering over 500km of Italy’s best climbing roads. The opening stage is a short and flat 13km team trial that should not see too much time being gained or lost. The difference will be made in the following 3 road stages with mountain top finishes on stages 2 and 3 while the final stage also has 2 category 2 climbs to contend with before the rolling road home. This race suits the out.
