Elia Viviani’s priorities in 2020 are the Tour de France, the Spring Classics and the Tokyo Olympics and he says he will skip the Giro d'Italia.

Viviani is leaving Deceunink-QuickStep at the end of the current campaign before switching to Cofidis for the new year.

And the 30-year-old that won his maiden Tour de France stage in Nancy before enjoying a hugely successful August that included wins in Hamburg, RideLondon and The European Championships, says he wants redemption in the early part of the next year.

“My first goal is Milan-San Remo [in March] and the other spring classics,” he told La Nazione.

" I have to redeem myself. There will be no Giro d’Italia for me, but the Tour, to prepare well and be 100 percent at the Tokyo Olympics - a fixation in my head."
