Team Sunweb is set to start in the Giro Rosa with a versatile team that can fight for stage victories.

The Italian race is set to be one of the most difficult and the most awaited in the calendar and Sunweb has chosen a team that is up to the challenge.

"This year’s Giro is very hard, but also interesting for a team like ours," said coach Hans Timmermans. "We come with a strong squad and can play a lot of cards for good stage results.

"Lucinda has already won three stages in the Giro in the past and in great shape at the moment, we would like to add to that number in Italy. We also have our youngsters, Liane is the newly crowned German champion and Juliette also had a great nationals campaign. This is their women’s Grand Tour debut so it will be a great step for their development, with no pressure on results."

Sunweb's complete roster for the Giro Rosa (6th to 15th of July):

Lucinda Brand
Ellen van Dijk
Leah Kirchmann
Juliette Labous
Liane Lippert
Julia Soek
Ruth Winder
