Simon Yates starts Giro d’Italia with top three as the target

Simon Yates will be lining up for a fifth Giro d’Italia with his name prominent amongst the list of favorites and a BikeExchange-Jayco squad squarely focused on supporting his GC challenge, but is not yet willing to pin a target on the Maglia rosa.

Yates has long known all too well how unpredictable the race can be – having led the GC for 13 stages in 2018 before handing off the top spot and plunging down the ranks on the third last day – but he held firm in the last stages of the 2021 Giro d’Italia, securing a position on the final overall podium in Milan with third.
