Simon Yates is set to lead Team BikeExchange at Il Lombardia.

The Australian squad is ready to start in the last Monument of the season with a strong team led by the Giro d'Italia podium finisher, who will count on the important support of riders like Damien Howson, Nick Schultz and Mikel Nieve.

The 115th edition of the race will take place after a few years between Como and Bergamo, over a route in which Esteban Chaves took the victory in 2016.

"I go to Il Lombardia after competing at the CRO Race last week, which allowed me to find the race pace again and improve my condition," commented Yates.

"I expect a very selective race, both because of the length of the race and because of the very demanding course, especially now that we are at the end of the season. The list of starters for this Monument is really strong and I expect a great battle as always."

Team BikeExchange's roster for Il Lombardia (October 9):

Kevin Colleoni (ITA)
Chris Juul-Jensen (DEN)
Damien Howson (AUS)
Mikel Nieve (ESP)
Nick Schultz (AUS)
Simon Yates (GBR)
Andrey Zeits (KAZ)
