Thomas, Swift lead Team Sky in Milan-San Remo


Team Sky named its squads for the upcoming Milan-San Remo and Volta a Catalunya, with Geraint Thomas and Ben Swift taking part in both WorldTour events.

Thomas, the winner of Paris-Nice, will lead the team together with Swift in Milan-San Remo. Swift was third in the 2014 edition, but could be a back-up to Elia Viviani, who won a stage of the Dubai Tour earlier this season.

The pair will be joined by former World Champion Michal Kwiatkowski, whose performance on a tough stage of Tirreno-Adriatico on Monday showed he is in strong form. Peter Kennaugh, Ian Stannard, Luke Rowe and Salvatore Puccio round out the team for La Primavera.

The trio will count on the support of Ian Boswell, world time trial champion Vasil Kiryienka, Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana winner Wout Poels, Mikel Nieve and Nicolas Roche.
