Marshall cyclist to compete in Giro d’Italia race

Joe Dombrowski, a 24-year-old cyclist from Marshall, will compete in the Giro d'Italia world cycling race beginning May 6.
A 24-year-old cyclist from Marshall will compete on the world stage in Italy starting this week.

Joe Dombrowski will ride on the Cannondale pro-cycling American team in the Giro d'Italia May 6-9.

Last August, Mr. Dombrowski won the Tour of Utah after recovering from leg surgery.

The Velo News report on his journey to the race:

Joe Dombrowski’s story is one of unrealized potential. He hopes to change that in May.

It’s been said by none other than his Cannondale team’s manager Jonathan Vaughters, that if the Tour de France were performed on spin bikes, his young charge would be in with a shot at yellow. But the bright light that shone on Dombrowski’s early years, including a win at the so-called Baby Giro over one Fabio Aru (Astana), has never sparkled on the world’s stage.

His short career has been full of setbacks. There were two disastrous years at Team Sky, then a diagnosis of iliac artery endofibrosis, leading to a lack of blood flow that caused dramatic power loss in his left leg. Surgery in August 2014 made 2015 a rebuilding year, capped off with his first pro stage race victory at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.
