Filippo Ganna will return to the Giro d’Italia in 2023 after missing the race this season in favour of the Tour de France. The Italian has already confirmed that he will start his campaign at the Vuelta a San Juan in January, while Paris-Roubaix will be the centrepiece of his Spring.
Currently in Mallorca at Ineos Grenadiers ‘ first training camp ahead of the new season, Ganna has yet to sketch out his 2023 calendar in granular detail, but he provided an overview of the opening phase in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport .
“I don’t want to get [to San Juan] in top form, but I don’t want to suffer too much either,” Ganna told La Gazzetta . “In the days ahead with the team, we’ll make a plan of attack for the races when I get back to Europe. I’ll go to the European Track Championships in Grenchen [February 8-12]. And in the Spring, it’s the Classics and the Giro d’Italia.”
Ganna helped Dylan van Baarle to victory at Paris-Roubaix last April and he confirmed to La Gazzetta that his Spring would be oriented more towards the Hell of the North than Milan-San Remo. He acknowledged that he still had improvements to make in road races of a certain distance.
