Giro Donne invites released

36

One benefit (well, of a sort) of the loss of the Tour de l'Aude is that as the only 10 day race left on the calendar the Giro is going to have its strongest field for years. Now the list of invited teams is out and there are a few interesting points HTC HIGHROAD WOMEN (United States) NEDERLAND BLOEIT (Netherlands) GARMIN - CERVELO (Great Britain) HITEC PRODUCTS - UCK (Norway ) AA DRINK - LEONTIEN.NL CYCLING TEAM (Netherlands) DIADORA - PASTA ZARA (United States) FORNO D'ASOLO COLAVITA (Italy) SC MCIPOLLINI GIAMBENINI (Italy) TOPSPORT VLAANDEREN 2012 - RIDLEY TEAM (Belgium) GAUSS (Italy) LOTTO HONDA TEAM (Belgium) VAIANO SOLARISTECH (Italy) S.C. MICHELA FANINI ROX (Italy) TOP GIRLS FASSA BORTOLO (Italy) KLEO LADIES TEAM (Italy) BIZKAIA-DURANGO (Spain) Dutch National squad ( Netherlands) Note that no French teams will be present, not even the National one, and that the large number of UCI teams present has also squeezed out the Australians.
