Spaniard Carlos Castaño of Xacobeo-Galicia will visit a biomechanic in Italy before heading to the Vuelta a Chihuahuaviaja, Mexico. Castaño is looking to improve his positioning on the bike. The biomechanic, known as Mariano, counts a number of other racers as his clients.
Castaño got the recommendation from a fellow Spanish racer. "He was recommended to me by Joaquim Rodríguez [Caisse d'Epargne], as he had good results with improving his pedal stroke.
Castaño hopes to improve his knee problems that bothered him during the Vuelta a España. "I had mixed feelings about the race, as I felt I had great strength and good form, but when I hit the handlebar [during a crash] I developed a tendonitis. That prevented me from being at my full strength in the key moments."
The Xacobeo-Galicia rider from Ávila is hoping to recover well. "The Vuelta a Chihuahuaviaja is practically the last race of the season and I would like to do well in it to close out the year on a high note."
The team is really upbeat, following a strong race in the Vuelta. "It is incredible with the increase of fans in Galicia and all the support we received during the Vuelta."
