Team Barloworld will face the Trofeo Laigueglia on February 23 in the Liguria region of Italy. Directed by Alberto Volpi, the team will comprise of Enrico Gasparotto, Steven Cummings, John Lee Augustyn, Patrick Calcagni, Gianpaolo Cheula, Marco Corti, Paolo Longo Borghini and Carlo Scognamiglio.
"We are looking forward to seeing how our cyclists perform as this race and the Vuelta Algarve [already in progress - ed.] will serve as a good indication of the shape they are in. We hope these races will prove to be challenging and prepare the team for the upcoming Giro del Capo and Cape Argus which takes place in South Africa in March," said Claudio Corti, Team Barloworld Manager.
Unfortunately, one rider who's having a tough February and will not be racing is Mauricio Soler. He did not start the Vuleta Algarve due to a knee injury.
