Team Barloworld manager Claudio Corti is confident his squad can come away with strong results when they take part in the Subida al Naranco (June 14) and Vuelta a Asturias (June 16-20) in Spain, going so far as to say they could take a win in either race.
Weve set our sights on success and are going back to Spain with a competitive team and riders who are all in excellent form, said the experienced Italian manager. The team will be led by directeur sportif Valerio Tebaldi, who is also confident in the strength of the squad going to Spain. The team for Asturias is especially strong, said Tebaldi. All the riders are motivated and this gives us the belief that we can get a good result.
