Saunier Duval-Scott's promising young Spaniard RaÃºl AlarcÃ³n would have been on the team's roster for both the GP Cost degli Etruschi and the Challenge-Volta a Mallorca, but the Valencia-born rider suffered a collision in training and will be forced to rest and recover. A car failed to brake at a stop sign and ran into AlarcÃ³n, who was taken to the hospital but escaped without serious injury. The 21-year-old will return to training in several days.
The Saunier Duval team will field a strong eight-man team in the Italian race, with Luciano Pagliarini, Riccardo RiccÃ², Manuele Mori, AurÃ©lien Passeron, Eros Capecchi, Ermanno Capelli and Ãngel "Litu" GÃ³mez under the direction of Matteo Algeri.
For the Challenge-Volta a Mallorca from February 10-14, Joxean FernÃ¡ndez "Matxin" and Sabino Angoitia will lead the team of JosÃ© Ãngel GÃ³mez Marchante, Juan JosÃ© Cobo, David De La Fuente, Manuele Mori, Denis Flahaut, Arkaitz DurÃ¡n, JesÃºs Del Nero, RubÃ©n Lobato, HÃ©ctor GonzÃ¡lez and BeÃ±at Intxausti.
