Giro d'Italia

Giro d’Italia Teams

Likely start lists, quick facts, and jerseys of the teams competing in the 2021 Giro d'Italia.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

The 104th Giro d’Italia is being contested by 184 riders from 23 teams.

The 19 WorldTour teams get automatic entry. Then there are four ProTeams. Of these, Alpecin-Fenix automatically qualified for the grand tours by scoring the most UCI points of those second-tier squads in 2020, while the other three (all from Italy) are wild cards selected by the race organizers: Androni-Giocattoli-Sidermec, Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè and EOLO-Kometa.

While most of the teams have up to 30 men registered to ride for them through the calendar year, they can select just eight riders to compete in the Giro. None of the teams finalize their Giro squads until a few days before the actual start. The names listed here are those listed on each of the teams’ preliminary selections (few teams had named eight riders).
