This race should be the last opportunity to shine.
Romain Bardet going to have a team of experienced riders from AG2R La Mondiale after a great 2016 season, such as Jan Bakelants, Mikael Chérel and Pierre Latour.

Romain Bardet has not hidden his desire to shine in this classic. "I like the Tour of Lombardy. It is a legendary race that suits me and which I hope m 'illustrate. I hope the end of Italian season will be a success but we approach this ultimate goal with ambitions reinforced by good performance in the Tour of Emilia. Saturday, the team was very supportive and I know I can rely on motivated crew and fit."
