Although part of Team Barloworld is busy preparing for the Giro d'Italia which starts on May 10, another portion of the squad will tackle back to back races in Spain including the Subida al Naranco on May 1 and the Vuelta a Asturias from May 3 to May 7.
The team is hoping that Moises Duenas can do well in the overall standings of the Vuelta a Asturias after showing some good form in recent weeks. An important test for the Spanish rider, the race will indicate if he is in suitable form for the Tour de France. Among others, Dueñas will be joined by Paolo Longo Borghini, who impressed the team with his rides at the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix, and by Marco Corti, who will continue his effort to gain additional experience during his first full season as a professional.
Barloworld for Subida al Naranco and the Vuelta a Asturias: Moises Dueñas, Diego Caccia, Giampaolo Cheula, Paolo Longo Borghini, Marco Corti, John-Lee Augustyn, Hugo Sabido and Christophe Froome. DS Flavio Miozzo.
