(Reuters) - Ineos Grenadiers are the favourites to continue their Giro d'Italia domination when Richard Carapaz spearheads the British team on the first grand tour of the season, which starts on Friday.

The Ecuadorian rider, who won the race in 2019 while at Movistar, leads a handful of favourites in what is expected to be a tight contest in the absence of Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar and his fellow Slovenian Primoz Roglic.
