Sonny Colbrelli is set to lead Bahrain Victorious at the Gran Piemonte, on October seven.

Just days after his epic victory in Paris-Roubaix, the European champion is set to be the captain of the Bahraini team at the Italian race -which he already won in 2018. This race is usually fought by the fast men, with a mostly flat route of 168 kilometres that joins Rocca Cavanese and Borgosesia, in the Piedmont region.

The course of the day kicks off with a hilly part that shouldn't represent a big problem for the fast men, and it is likely to finish in a bunch sprint after the 35 kilometres circuit.

"All our riders will have the role to support the captain Sonny Colbrelli," said Alberto Volpi, Bahrain Victorious Sports Director. "He’s coming from the biggest success of his career and a very demanding race as the Roubaix. Therefore, obviously, how he has recovered will be crucial.

"But the race suits him, and our goal is the win. To take it, we will try to race intelligently, avoiding stressful situations for our leader, protecting him throughout the race so that he can save energies for the final sprint."

Bahrain Victorious' line-up for Gran Piemonte (October 7):
