The German Radprofi Emanuel Buchmann takes the Giro d'Italia in the coming season and does not plan for the Tour de France. The 29-year-old Buchmann is one of three strong mountaineerers of the German Top Team Bora-Hansgrohe, which should fight for a podium at the Italy tour (6 to 29 May).
The Giro profile has hired me a bit. I opened an invoice after last year, said Buchmann. The mountain specialist in the previous year was promising in the race until he had to give up a fall as a sixth of the overall standings on the 15th stage.
At the upcoming issue, Buchmann shares the leadership with the Dutch Wilco Kelderman and Newcomer Jay Hindley from Australia. It's already cool, we can move something as a team, said Buchmann. Kelderman and Hindley were already on the podium in 2020 at the Giro. Buchmann was fourth of the France tour in 2019.
On the overall rating of Giro d'Italia is a great focus this year. We do not take a sprinter there, said sport director Rolf Aldag, We go with great quality at the start. We have the chance, aggressive and offensive to drive and react to every situation in the mountains. The Giro team also includes tour stage winner Lennard Kombna.

For these, the Irish Sprinter Sam Bennett is primarily concerned, but the German riders Nils Polit and Maximilian Schachmann opportunities should also be preserved. For the overall class, the team plans with the Russian Alexander Wlassow.
