WorldTour team top up on training in Spain
The Astana team have already begun competing on a number of fronts with squads having raced at The Tour Down Under, Tour Down Under and with a team currently at the Tour of Qatar. However that didn't stop them from one last stint of training on the roads around Alicante, in Spain -a haunt for number of major teams during the off-season.
Janez Brajkovic and Fredrik Kessiakoff were both in attendance, and both will be looking for similar form to last year.
Brajkovic finished in the top ten at the Tour last year but has already stated that he will help Vincenzo Nibali win the Giro d'Italia before looking to race for himself at the Vuelta.
