Scatterà in less than 48 hours the ninth edition of the European Road Championships, which will take place in the Netherlands, in Drenthe from September 20 to 24. For five days, the Dutch province will welcome more than 850 participants from 40 nations; 14 titles are up for grabs.

The convocations of the Italian national teams that will take part in the event have been issued. The European appointment comes at the end of a season in which there were many riders to put themselves in the limelight but also challenging and, in some cases, marked by injuries, which forced to give up some key pawns, such as the world time trial champion Lorenzo Milesi and the Italian champion Bryan Olivo, who will not be at the start among the U23.

In the Elite road race at the starting ribbons will be Filippo Ganna, who will focus his energies on the road for this event. Alongside him, leading a group of experienced riders will be Matteo Trentin and Elia Viviani. For the Under 23s, on the other hand, they will race with the double commitment of honoring the European and confirming their leadership in the Nations Cup, won thanks to excellent performances in the Tour de l’Avenir.

It will be possible to watch the races live on television on RaiSport HD and on Eurosport channels, live streaming will be provided instead by RaiPlay, SkyGo, Now TV and DAZN.

These are the summoned players:

Filippo Ganna – Ineos Grenadiers
Edoardo Affini – Team Jumbo-Visma
Matteo Trentin – UAE Team Emirates
Elia Viviani – Ineos Grenadiers
Luca Mozzato – Team Arkéa-Samsic
Andrea Pasqualon – Bahrain Victorious
Matteo Sobrero – Team Jayco AlUla
Mattia Cattaneo – Soudal Quick-Step
