There was a time when Ineos Grenadiers simply couldn’t get the Giro d’Italia right, but since claiming their first pink jersey with Chris Froome in 2018, they’ve gone on to win it again twice more.  

They are therefore the team we first look to for overall contenders, and in Richard Carapaz they have the rider who on paper looks best equipped to win this year’s race. He’s one of just three genuine contenders to have already won a Grand Tour, and of those riders has the best record in recent Grand Tours, having placed on the podium another two times since 2019.
