Mirza said: “I’m over the moon to be selected to be taking on the roads of Sardegna for the first Settimana Ciclistica Italiana. We’ve never raced here before and I am excited. The team are doing their job at the Tour de France and I am feeling positive and confident of our chances in Italy. We are going here looking for victories.”
