Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears will be the only ProTour team that will take part in the Spanish Clásica Los Puertos de Guadarrama in Madrid on August 20. There are also four continental professional teams: 3 Molinos Resort Murcia, Andalucía Paul Versan, Kaiku and Relax Gam, with Comunidad Valenciana in doubt.
The race features three main climbs: el Alto de los Leones (Cat. 2), el Alto de Navacerrada (Cat. 1) and Alto de Serranilla (Cat. 3), which will be tackled four times, two of them at the start, and the other two in the finale.
