Team Barloworld is still happily recovering from its highly-successful Tour de France debut, which saw it bring in two stage wins and the mountain jersey. The British-registered, Italian-based, South African-backed squad described the Tour as: "a key moment for the future of the team as it grows into one of the best in the world. [But] there are other races on the calendar."
One of those other races is the Tour of Portugal, which runs August 4 to 11. "Team Barloworld will field a strong team of riders who did not ride the Tour de France but that does not mean the team will not be competitive," read the squad's release. It will be led by Pedro Arreitunandia, John-Lee Augustyn, and Hugo Sabido.
