Alex Dowsett among 11 names on Movistar’s Giro d’Italia shortlist

Alex Dowsett is in line to support Alejandro Valverde in the Giro d’Italia after being named in Movistar’s 11-man shortlist Alex Dowsett 1 is among the 11 riders named in Movistar 2 s shortlist for the Giro d Italia 3 , and with time trials over the 21 stages the 27-year-old Brit should be confident of a place in the final nine.

One of Dowsett s biggest wins to date came at the 2013 Giro, when he won the the 43km time trial 4 between Gabicce Mare and Saltara ahead of the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins 5 and Vincenzo Nibali 6 .

Like in 2013, the 2016 Giro features a long rolling time trial on stage nine 7 , which should suit Dowsett s skillset, and with Movistar s other main time triallists Adriano Malori and Jonathan Castroviejo out with injury 8 Dowsett could get the nod.
