Katusha misses out as Giro wild cards go to Team Colombia, Bardiani-CSF and Vini Fantini

Team Colombia, formerly Colombia Coldeportes, plus Italian outfits Bardiani-CSF and Vini Fantini, are celebrating having been awarded wild cards by organisers RCS Sport for May’s Giro d’Italia.

Also losing out is NetApp-Endura.
