The directeur sportif for Extremadura-Ciclismo Solidario's, Alfonso Rodriguez, has announced his team for the Volta a la Comunidad Valenciana, which takes place from February 26 to March 1. The riders will be Xabat Otxotorena, Francisco Terciado, Sergio Herrero, Gonzalo Zambrano, Carles Torrent, Jaume Rovira, Israel Perez and Enrique Salgueiro.
Three team members, Sergio Herrero, Israel Perez and Enrique Salgueiro, have already disputed all the races on the team calendar this season. But Rodriguez indicated that now the team can't afford to give rest to anyone, as the team is stretched thin.
The return of the pistard Carles Torrent after his injury will be very important. It is his debut as an Extremadura-Ciclismo Solidario racer. He will try to contest the sprints, but it is not known yet if his fitness level is up to par, after the injury.
