The Czech rider Jan Hruska (3 Molinos Resort) will return to racing in the G.P. Correios, following his failed health check before the start of the Volta ao Catalunya. Hruska had a reticulocyte (new red blood cell) count that was below the UCI limit, and was forced to rest for two weeks without racing. Subsequent tests have cleared him, and he will form part of his team for the Portuguese race, which starts on Thursday.
3 Molinos Resort will be led by Jesus del Nero, who finished third in the Euskal Bizikleta. Apart from Hruska and Del Nero, the 3 Molinos Resort squad is composed of Jesús Buendia, José Antonio Baños, Pedro Luis Castillo and Pedro Martínez.
The 3 Molinos Resort riders in the G.P. Correios are using the race to prepare for the Spanish championships, which will take place in Mostoles, near Madrid, on the last weekend of June. Santos González wants to arrive in top condition for the time trial, as does his Del Nero.
